Hello my zebras!
Fräulein Zebra is back!
Yippie! I hope you are as happy as I am! For various personal reasons I had to take a break from blogging – as usual, it was all planned very differently. But life is just like that – sometimes you have to rethink and adjust your plans.
But now I am finally back! And the zebra and I have a lot of new ideas in store for you! I’ll share more details with you during the next few weeks and I’m pretty sure you’ll find the news just as exciting as we do!
However, today’s post shouldn’t be about that. Instead, I have super delicious cookies for you – so colorful and lemony, that they spread a feeling of summer in the middle of autumn.
Lemon Sprinkle Cookies
makes 12-15 cookies
- 110g butter
- 125g sugar
- 1 egg
- 2 tsp grated lemon peel
- 1 tablespoon lemon juice
- some lemon extract
- 1/2 tsp baking soda
- 1 teaspoon cornstarch
- 200g flour
- Sprinkles (Nonpareils)
Preheat oven to 200 ° C and line two baking trays with baking paper.
In a medium sized bowl mix butter and sugar with a hand mixer. Add egg and mix well. Add the lemon peel, lemon juice and lemon extract and stir in until combined.
Mix the flour, baking soda and starch. Add to the remaining ingredients and mix until a smooth, soft dough is formed.
Place the sugar sprinkles in a small bowl. Form the dough into a balls and gently roll them around in the sprinkles until evenly coated. Put them on the baking trays – do not flatten the dough and make sure to leave enough space between them as the cookies will spread while baking. Bake for 8-10 minutes. Let the cookies cool down completely before serving.
Do not worry if they look a little undercooked at first – the cookies become firmer while cooling down. The inside will be soft but the outside is crispy!
And do you know what makes this recipe even better? Not only do you get delicious cookies but also a wonderfully fragrant home – thanks to the lemon spreading its aroma …
Oh, it’s so nice to be back and I’ve missed you very much! Also: Thank you so much for your loyalty!
Stay sweet & HAPPY BAKING!
