Cookie Recipe ~ Lemon Shortbread


My father’s two favourite types of treats is anything that has to do with shortbread and lemon.  He absolutely loves these cookies and I’m sure they’ll be a favourite in your family too:


What You Will Need to do:


–   1 cup of softened butter

–   ½ cup of confectioners’ sugar

–   ¼ cup of granulated sugar

–   1 tsp of grated lemon peel

–   2 cups of lemon peel

–   1 tsp of salt


–   2 cups of confectioners’ sugar

–   3 Tbsp of lemon juice

–   2 tsp of grated lemon peel

–   yellow food colouring


What You Will Need to do:

1.   Preheat your oven to 325°F.

In a bowl, cream the butter and sugars until it becomes fluffly.

2.   Beat in lemon peel.

3.   Combine flour and salt, gradually add to creamed mixture and mix well.

4.   Divide dough in half.  Shape each into a ball.  Then flatten into a disk.

5.   Roll out each portion between two sheets of waxed paper to ¼inch thickness.

6.   With a cookie cutter, make desired cookie shapes and place on greased baking sheets.

7.   Bake for about 7 minutes or until the bottoms of the cookies are lightly browned.

8.   While you`re waiting for the cookies to bake, make the topping of the cookies by combining the confectioners’ sugar, lemon juice and lemon peel together.

9.   Once the cookies have cooled down, spread the topping over the cookies.

There are many things that I love to do. One of those things is crafts! If I could find a job that involved crafts and being able to pay the bills, I'd be all over it! I've also found a great love for cooking and baking in the past few years. Sometimes there doesn't seem to be enough time in the day to be able to fully get into cooking and baking to the degree that I would like to. I've also found myself making a HUGE effort to save my family money. I'm still a beginner but I'm surprised at how many different ways I've found to save money, including starting to use coupons! I hope you enjoy all that I'm about to share.
