I had enough chocolate decorating my Christmas cookie platter, and there were enough entries with nuts too. I was looking for a different taste as a final addition to this year’s Christmas cookie round-up. I went to my favourite new pass-time, Pinterest, for inspiration. I came upon a lemon cookie that had won first prize in a baking contest. It contained fresh lemon juice and rind. I thought it sounded fresh and light…exactly what I was looking for. The recipe did not disappoint me. You rolled the cookie in icing sugar before baking and this gave it a nice crinkly appearance…kind of like a ginger snap minus the tan! The cookie was a little crisp on the outside and chewy on the inside…another satisfying new addition to my Christmas recipes.
I’m off to NYC for a few days to capture some Christmas cheer. I hope to come back with some interesting baking and culinary finds from the Big Apple. See you soon!
