Another summer treat.
I’ll hang onto summer as long as I can.
Abundant fresh fruit.
Tell me you don’t like summer!
And since I love you so much I didn’t want to let you wait forever for this lemon sugar cookies recipe I mentioned in my last post.
I don’t have lots of sugar cookies recipes on the blog, but I can honestly say these are the best sugar cookies!
They are buttery melt in your mouth soft, with a tangy lemony touch from the lemon extract and lemon juice.
These sugar cookies are not good for decorating, being too fragile, they are best served on their own with a tall glass of cold milk, or with some preserve, even a little chocolate ganache in between two cookies. Nutella. Peanut Butter. Biscoff. Lots of possibilities.
I’ve made these cookies on a hot summer day, dreaming of sunny beaches with a nice ocean breeze.
If you don’t like the lemon flavor you can use vanilla extract or half of a vanilla bean paste or any other flavor.
The recipe is from Taste of Home magazine and although most of the recipes on this blog are adapted or developed in my kitchen, but to this one I’ve changed so little, using lemon instead of vanilla and just a dust more of flour.
