Lemon Crinkle Cookies ~ 柠檬裂纹曲奇 ~ CNY 2016


These cookies are very lemony both in fragrance and flavour with crispy edges and a soft, chewy cakey centre.   Together with the delicate aroma of icing sugar, they were just irresistible after the first bite.  A word of caution though -  it was just impossible to roll the dough into balls even after I'd just taken it out of the refridgerator as due to our hot weather, the dough turned soft very quickly and it became very sticky.  So what I did was to pinch some dough and toss it into the icing or powdered sugar to coat.  Hence my cookies were not so uniform both in shape and in size!











These cookies are really yummy, something different from the normal CNY cookies, so why not add this to your CNY baking list too.........

    1. Yes, I just hope that they did not flatten too much and I was glad that they didn't.

  4. I love anything lemony and I've not baked any lemony cookies before. It would be a nice change from chocolate chip cookies!
