A few days ago, my mother gave me a bag of lemons for me to finish. It was almost I was given an empty canvas. I was suddenly excited to bake. So I started to do a little searching for an appealing simple recipe, and I stumble upon this cookie recipe.
To be honest, I was a bit skeptical on how it would turn out, but boy, it does shows me.. the lemony taste, the little crisp at the edge of the cookie, the not-so-sweet taste.
I got the recipe from this page, but to be honest, I alter some of it, and it turns out to my liking.
-mix 1/2 cup of granulated sugar with the zest of a large lemon.
What I altered:
1- the lemon sugar: I add a bit more zest (perhaps a teaspoon), a pinch of salt and a few sprinkles of lemon juice.
2- I add 1/4 teaspoon of lemon flavoring to the dough.
3- I did not roll the dough into a ball and roll it in the salt, rather, I just put the ball onto the lined baking pan, press it a bit with a wet spoon (to stop it from sticking to the spoon) and sprinkle some lemon sugar on top of the dough.
While taking the first bite, I also realized that this cookie is kind of posh, it's a bit too fancy to be eaten with milk, but it is nice to be paired with tea..
