I have an abundance of lemons at the moment so had a play round with my Chocolate Chip cookie recipe and came up with these deliciously crunchy lemon cookies. They spread quite a bit so make sure you don’t overload the tray.
1 1/2 cups sugar
1 tbsp lemon juice
zest of 1 lemon
1/4 cup of custard powder
2 1/2 cups flour
2 1/2 tsp baking powder
Cream butter and sugar until light and fluffy. Add eggs one at a time, beating well after each addition. Add lemon zest and juice and mix until just combined. Sift flour, baking powder and custard powder together and add to the wet ingredients a bit at a time, mixing well. If the mixture is a bit sticky, add more flour.
Roll into balls and place onto oven tray. Press flat with a fork and bake at 180°C for 15 minutes or until golden. Cool slightly on tray then remove to a cooling rack to cool completely. Store in an airtight container. Makes 40.
