Ingredients

  • 2/3 cup plus 2 tablespoons sugar
  • 2 teaspoons grated lemon peel
  • 1 cup unsalted butter, softened
  • 1 egg

Nutritional Facts

1 cookie equals 83 calories, 5 g fat (3 g saturated fat), 10 mg cholesterol, 5 mg sodium, 10 g carbohydrate, trace fiber, 1 g protein.

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 350°. In a small food processor, combine sugar and lemon peel; cover and process until blended. In a large bowl, cream butter and 2/3 cup lemon-sugar until light and fluffy. Beat in egg, lemon juice and vanilla. Combine flour, baking powder and salt; gradually add to creamed mixture and mix well.
  2. Using a cookie press fitted with a 1-1/2-in. bar disk, form dough into long strips on ungreased baking sheets. Cut each strip into squares (there is no need to separate the pieces).
  3. Bake 8-10 minutes or until set (do not brown). Remove to wire racks to cool completely.
  4. In a microwave, melt chocolate; stir until smooth. Dip cookies diagonally in chocolate, allowing excess to drip off. Place on waxed paper; sprinkle chocolate with remaining lemon-sugar. Let stand until set. Store in an airtight container at room temperature, or freeze up to 3 months. Yield: 6 dozen.

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Dec. 19, 2011

Didn't bother dipping in chocolate - everyone raved about this recipe. I do huge trays of Christmas cookies every year and these are one of the most popular

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Feb. 7, 2010

I made these for a cookie sale and got rave reviews.

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Dec. 1, 2009

I would try using lemon extract in these cookies next time rather than the vanilla extract to try to give them a little more zest. Other than that I thought they were really nice and not too overpowering which can be really nice when you have a big meal such as Thanksgiving or Christmas!

Everyone also loved how pretty these cookies turned out!

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Nov. 8, 2009

Cookie was very bland. Very disappointing; wouldn't make again.
