I would love to help incorporate your cookie recipes in our 12 days as well! Send me a link and I will get it on the page!

On the eleventh day of cookies my sweet love gave to me Lemon Spritzer Cookies! I thought I would through a yummy light cookie on here. It is tasty and will so be the highlight of your next cookie exchange!

Ingredients:
2 cups of butter softened ( this would be 1 entire box of butter)
1 and 1/4 cups of sugar
2 large eggs
Grated peel of 1 lemon
2 teaspoons of lemon juice
5 and 1/4 cup of all purpose flour
1/4 teaspoon salt
colored sugar for decoration

Directions:

  1. In a large bowl place the butter and sugar. Cream until you get a pale yellow and the mixture is fluffy. Beat the eggs in one at a time and incorporate completely after each egg. All lemon peel, lemon juice and vanilla.
  2. Grab another bowl and combine flour and salt. Gradually add to the wet mixture. Press dough one inch apart onto an ungreased baking sheet ( ungreased due to all the butter… it won’t stick!)
  3. Sprinkle with colored sugar before you bake. Bake at 350 degrees for 8 to 10 minutes or until lightly brown.

This should yield about 12 dozen cookies! Perfect for your cookie exchange!  A big thank you to Taste Of Home for this amazing recipe… it can be found here

Until Next Time,
