Cookie Challenge: This one under test - ignore!
I will be baking and delivering to you a new, unboring, cookie recipe every day until Christmas. Tall order, right? Wish me luck!
I got this recipe from a famous baker's cookbook, but the recipe did not work as it was supposed to. Turns out after a week of communication with the authors website that there is indeed an issue with this cookie recipe. As soon as I solve it I will update this recipe. In the meantime, visit one of my other three lemon cookie recipes!
- 1 1/2 c
- all purpose white flour
- 6 Tbsp
- 1/4 tsp
- 3/4 c
- 2 Tbsp
- lemon zest, finely grated (3 lemons)
- 1 c
- butter (unsalted), softened
- 2 large
- egg yolks
- 2 tsp
- pure vanilla extract
- 1 c
- sliced blanched almonds
Measure a level tablespoon of dough and roll it in your hands to form a ball (your hand warms the butter and the nuts will stick, so you have to form the balls one at a time). Drop the ball as soon as it is formed into the bowl of nuts and shake the bowl to twirl the ball around, coating it in nuts.
Place the nut-covered balls on cookie sheets, 2 inches apart.
Bake for 10 minutes.
Transfer the cookies to a wire rack to cool. (Allow the sheets to cool completely before the next batch.)
If you want to give them an extra lovliness, sprinkle powdered sugar over them. :-)
