Eggless Lemon Cookies

BM # 60
Week :4 , Day: 2
Theme: Baked Snacks

For the second day under Baked Snacks, I have some Lemon Cookies from Gayathri's blog. I had loved these cookies when she had made them for the mega marathon. I loved the imprint on them, but unfortunately couldn't get that same effect. The original recipe had lemon cream, but I omitted that , I simply made lemon flavored. I must say that these cookies vanished right away and I wish I had made more. Doesn't that prove that these taste awesome. Thank Gayathri, these were totally addictive.


2 1/4 cups flour
2/3 cups caster sugar
1 cup butter
2 tbsp milk
2 tsp lemon juice
1 tsp lemon zest

Preheat oven to 180°C.
Cream together butter, sugar and lemon zest.
Add the milk and lemon juice and beat until fluffy.
Add the flour and mix to form a soft dough.
Make small lemon sized balls and place them on a greased baking tray. 
With the flat side of a tumbler, press the ball to make it flat. 
I inverted a Hello Kitty muffin mould to get the design on top, but somehow it didn't print well.
Bake the cookies for 10-15 minutes or until golden brown.
Transfer to wire rack and allow it to cool completely.
