I agreed to bake a batch of cookies for a gathering that I had to attend on Monday night, so I decided to give Lemon Snowdrop Cookies another try with some slight modifications.
The ingredients for the cookies are: butter, powdered sugar, lemon zest, lemon juice, flour, and salt (see the link above for the exact recipe).
I put the butter in the mixer first:
Then I added the powdered sugar:
Once all of those ingredients were well combined, I added the flour and salt:
After mixing the dough just enough to incorporate the flour, I used a small tablespoon-sized scoop to make each cookie equal in size and then I made an indentation in the center of each cookie and then I put them in a 400 degree oven for about seven minutes.
While the cookies were baking, I made the lemon filling. The ingredients include: sugar, one egg, lemon zest, lemon juice, and butter.
All of the ingredients go into a saucepan over medium heat:
I cooked the filling over medium heat for about ten minutes until it thickened to the consistency of pudding and then I let it cool before adding it to the cookies.
I put filling in the center of each cookie and then dusted them with powdered sugar. Here they are, nicely arranged on a platter:
