Hello folks!Happy Fiesta Friday to you all!This Friday i thought to bring some Lemon Cookies, was I wrong? I totally love lemon taste, and in the summer I often use it for cookies and cakes: I thing it has a refreshing taste. I found the recipe in Marisa’s blog: her recipe are just fabulous. Here the recipe:


INGREDIENTS: for 25/30 cookies

– 120 gr granulated sugar
– 120 gr soft butter
– 1 egg
– 1 lemon
– 250 gr flour 00
– 1 teaspoon full of baking powder for desserts
– powdered sugar (as needed)


In a bowl work with a mixer – or with whisks – the soft butter with the sugar, till you’ll obtain a creamy mixture. After that, sift the flour together with the teaspoon of baking powder for desserts.


Continue to work the mixture with the mixer; in the meanwhile, add the whole egg, the juice of half lemon, the grated peel of a whole lemon, and finally the sifted flour with the baking powder. The final mix obtained will be soft: let it rest in the fridge wrapped in clingfilm for 1 hour.


When the hour has gone, make small ball with the mixture, and put them first in the granulated sugar, and then in the powdered sugar. Set the small balls in a baking tray covered in wax paper. Cook them in the preheated oven at  180°C for 10/15 minutes.


Check often while cooking, the cookies must be taken out when you see that they have “cracks” on the surface. At this moment the lemon cookies will be really soft. You have to let them cool down for a bit before serving.

Buon Appetito!Cris

    • Hello welcome!No, as you can see this is a really simple (and quick) recipe. They’re great also with orange&lemon juice together, so fresh taste. 😉

  3. Happy Fiesta Friday to you, too! These cookies are gorgeous. I’ve never had a biscotti that wasn’t rolled out and cut from a log, but I love the idea that these are simply made. They must be just bursting with lemon flavor!

    • Ciao Silva! in cosa differisce la ricetta, più burro? la trovo da qualche parte sul tuo blog? questi sono venuti già molto morbidi (e in effetti bisogna lasciarli raffreddare ben bene prima di spolverizzare con zucchero a velo e toglierli dalla teglia, se no si rompono un po’)…a me sono piaciuti molto!
