Lemon Dream Cookies
Make this Lemon Dream Cookies recipe whenever you want the flavor of lemon on your table. This lemon cookie recipe combines a simple short bread type of cookie base with a lovely lemon filling made entirely from scratch. That means there will be big lemon flavor in this Lemon Dream Cookies recipe. So make some today and serve them to the family after dinner tonight.
This lemon dream cookies recipe is made in two easy steps. The first step is to prepare the cookie base, which is quite simple and very similar to a thumbprint cookie in that you do press a thumb in to the center of the cookie when you bake it. The second part is where you prepare the filling. This is an easy filling to make that will have loads of lemon flavor to tantalize your taste buds. Once that is done, allow it to cool for a little bit before you spoon a small teaspoonful in to each depression in each cookie. Let them cool fully since lemon tastes much better when it is cool than when it is served hot. Enjoy!
These cookies could be a great recipe for an up and coming baker to try on his or her own. They are really such a straightforward and simple cookie to make, and the two parts are prepared quite separately from each other, making it easy to focus, first, on the cookie, and second, on the filling. Once both parts of the lemon dream cookies recipe are done, then the cookies come together, which, again, is a fairly easy step. So let the kids in to the kitchen, and slip quietly away and have your own cup of tea in peace.
This is a cookie recipe that is made entirely from scratch and so it carries all the richness and great flavor that a home made cookie can impart. There is just no comparing a cookie that is made only with ingredients from your kitchen and other sweets and desserts that are made using commercially purchased ingredients. Those types of desserts might be okay for when you are caught and in a pinch because you are running late, or too exhausted to make something from scratch, but for the most part, if you can make it as a home made item, its flavor is inimitable, and always better. Of course, every recipe depends on great ingredients to make a really good dessert or treat, but once that is managed, the home made version of a dish is always going to be terrific. Enjoy these cookies soon. They are quick and easy to make and the kids can take over and make them for you!
