“These are great cookies and so easy to bake. They not only taste great with a great texture, but they also look perfect because they bake into perfect circles. If you make them, hide them or they will be gone in a flash. I normally have to double the recipe. A great change from oatmeals and chocolate chips cookies. Credit to”

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. In a medium bowl, cream together butter and 1 cup sugar and lemon zest if use until light and fluffy.
  2. Beat in egg, corn syrup, and lemon extract.
  3. Stir in flour, baking soda, and baking powder.
  4. Cover dough, and chill in the refrigerator at least 1 hour. (Very important).
  5. Preheat oven to 325 degrees F (165 degrees C).
  6. Line a cookie sheet with parchment paper.
  7. Roll chilled dough into walnut sized balls. Roll balls in remaining sugar, and place on the prepared cookie sheet.
  8. Bake 12 minutes in the preheated oven, or until lightly browned. (Time depends on your oven. My girlfriend's oven only requires 10 minutes.).
  9. Note: You can choose to skip rolling the cookies into the sugar. Instead, you can dust the cooled cookies into powder sugar.
  10. Note: I have also rolled them in decorator 's sugar in variety of colors and they were very pretty.
