I admit the title “Simply Amazing Lemon Tea Cookies” might sound like a trite exaggeration, but if you love crisp super lemony cookies, like I do, just one taste of these will assure you that I am telling the truth.
I made these for our monthly Fill the Cookie Jar post. A group of bloggers all make cookies based on a monthly theme and share them in a virtual cookie exchange. Our theme for May is Mother’s Day. And this mother loves lemon cookies. And I think my mom does too. Be sure to scroll below the recipe to see what the other FTCJ bakers made.
This recipe is from the Cook’s Illustrated Cookbook. I thought about tossing in some basil or rosemary, but I just went with pure lemon flavor this time around. I fell in love with this recipe for its ease as well as flavor. Everything is whipped up in the food processor in a matter of minutes.
J and I tried a few the night we made them, then we quickly packaged up the rest and shared with a few staff members at the school in the morning. All four of them raved about the cookies when I picked him up admitting they couldn’t stop at just one cookie because they were so addicting.
You can make them for your Mother for Mother’s Day, or for a Tea Party, or just because you love lemon cookies.
