Lemon-Poppy Seed Cutout Cookies
Total TimePrep: 30 min. + chilling Bake: 10 min./batch + cooling
These cookies haveva nice lemony taste but I doubt I will make them again. The dough was very soft even after it was in frig overnight, hard to roll out and have anything keep its shape other than circles.
Just a word of warning. If you have any type of job that does drug testing, DO NOT eat poppy seeds or you will test positive for drugs. I love poppy seed bread, muffins, cookies, etc. but my company does random testing so unfortunately I had to give up something I like. This did not happen to me but my company gave us a list of things to avoid.
Although I liked the taste of this cookie I had trouble with the dough. It was too sticky to roll out so I tried using my cookie press but the dough became too soft too quickly. If I made these again I would just use a small cookie scoop and drop them on the cookie sheet.
We really like these cookies! The lemon zest gives them a bright, fresh lemon flavor and they look pretty too!
