These soft, almost cake-like cookies make a very welcome afternoon treat with a steaming cup of tea or tall glass of cold milk.

They can easily be prepared in a few minutes and if you like.  You can keep the wrapped dough in the fridge for 2 or 3 days so that you can bake them off fresh a few at a time.

These lemon snow cookies are easy to make, tender, almost cake-like morsels that go beautifully with an afternoon cup of tea.

Ingredients

  • 1 1/4 cups flour
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1/2 cup butter
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 large egg
  • finely minced zest of 1/2 lemon, more if you like

Instructions

  1. Sift together the flour and baking powder and set aside.
  2. Cream together the butter and sugar well.
  3. Beat in the vanilla extract and egg.
  4. Stir in the finely minced lemon zest.
  5. Fold in the flour mixture until a soft dough forms. Do not overwork the dough. Wrap the dough in plastic wrap and chill in the fridge for about a 1/2 hour.
  6. Roll dough into about 1 inch balls and place them 2 inches apart on a parchment lined cookie sheet. Press them down with two fingers. Bake at 325 degrees F for 12 minutes or until they just start to turn golden brown at the bottom edges.
  7. While still hot dust with powdered sugar. Transfer to a wire rack to cool completely.

These are delicious. Made them yesterday and they are almost gone and I am making a batch right now using gluten free flour for a special treat for seniors that can't have gluten. Love all Barry's recipes. This could be easily made into a holiday cookie with a half glace cherry in the center too.
