Recipe: Spiced Lemon Cookies

I love a little hit of unexpected spice in cookies.  In these, I used Teeny Tiny Spice Company's Garam Masala, but you could use straight ground cardamom, also.

Spiced Lemon Cookies

1/2 c butter, room temperature
1/4 c + 2 Tbsp granulated sugar
1 Tbsp lemon zest
1/2 tsp Teeny Tiny Spice Company's Garam Masala (or 1/2 tsp ground cardamom)
1 c flour

1/4 c confectioner's sugar
1 tsp lemon zest
1 Tbsp Lemon juice powder (optional)

Preheat oven to 375 F.  Cream together sugar and butter.  Add in lemon zest and spice, and then mix in flour until a nice dough forms.

Combine the confectioner's sugar, additional zest, and lemon juice powder (if using) in a small bowl.  Scoop the dough into small balls and roll in the confectioner's sugar mixture.  Place on a parchment paper lined cookie sheet and press with the bottom of a small glass to flatten.  Bake for ~10 minutes until lightly browned.  Cool on a wire rack and enjoy.

Pin It!
