The best part about this pound cake cookies recipe is that you can pretty much make them the way you prefer. You can add lemon or orange zest to the dough to give it a refreshing citrus flavour. You can add chocolate chips, cinnamon, coconut flakes, honey or a hint of almond extract for a nutty aftertaste. Make it very festive by adding pumpkin puree along with the pumpkin pie spices. For the garnish on top try adding toasted almonds or cashews or even mixed fruit or berry jam. For special occasions such as kids’ birthday parties, you can add rainbow sprinkles on top or try topping with marshmallows coated in chocolate to make it look edgy and fun. There is so much you can do with this wonderful pound cake cookies recipe. If you prefer soft texture to these cookies, then bake them for about 12 minutes approximately.

An important cake baking tip is to use the best vanilla extract in this cookie recipe, preferably organic pure vanilla extract. The best vanilla flavour, just like salt acts as a flavour enhancer. Nielsen-Massey is a top organic pure vanilla extract with no corn syrup or additives. You’ll notice how much of a difference a pure vanilla extract can make to desserts. Quality ingredients are always the key to achieving the best flavour in cookies. You can store these yummy cookies for up to a week in an airtight container. Make sure to place the dough 2 inches apart on the baking sheet before you transfer them into the oven, as the dough tends to expand a tiny bit.
