Fresh Lemon Juice, Fresh Lemon Zest and Lemon Extract make these Chewy Lemon Cookies bursting full of lemon flavor
I’ve made lemon cookies before, twice on my blog actually. While I am a chocoholic 99.9% of the time, occasionally I love a good lemon treat. And lemon is a fabulous flavor for a cookie, it breaks up all the dare I say it? Chocolate. But often times when you find a lemon cookie its flat and crisp or thick and cakey. While I personally enjoy all types of cookies, I ain’t one to judge, I like ’em all! When I made these I was in the mood for a chewy cookie.
So I set out to make a thickier but not cake like chewy lemon cookie.
I was very happy with the results.
I let the cookies chill in the fridge overnight which I feel helped enhance the lemon flavor. I use lemon zest, lemon juice and lemon extract in these cookies cuz gosh darnit I want the lemon to scream!
These are the type of cookies you eat like 10 and think it’s only been like 2 cookies but wonder where the heck the rest disappeared to
I originally was going to drizzle the cookies with a lemon glaze but knew I was short on time so I rolled the cookies in powdered sugar for fun.
Some other Lemon Cookies I posted on my blog look very similar to these cookies but these are more chewy cookies.
I took these Chewy Lemon Cookies to a bbq and they disappeared way faster than I expected, thank god I had some at home before the bbq otherwise I wouldn’t have had any!
