As you know from yesterday’s blog post, I am dedicating this entire week to Easter. Yesterday I showed you some Easter cookie cutters and today I going put them to good use. I am giving you my recipe for gluten, lactose and yeast free lemon sugar cookies. I love lemon as a flavour, and I think that it is perfect for this time of year. Don’t forget to check out my video below!
Let’s a go!
113 g Butter, softened (I like to use Lacto Free Butter)
113 g Caster Sugar
1/2 Medium Egg, beaten
Zest Of One Lemon
265 g Gluten Free Self-Raising Flour
Icing Sugar, for rolling
Baking Trays/Cookie Sheets x 2
Large Mixing Bowl
Wooden Spoon/Electric Hand Whisk
Easter Cookie Cutters
First measure out all your ingredients and preheat your oven to: 180°C/160°C Fan/Gas mark 4. Also, grease and line your baking trays/cookie sheets. Measure your baking paper against your baking sheets/cookie sheets and tear off enough to cover it. Using your spray oil, spray the baking trays/cookie sheets, placing your baking paper on top (the oil will keep the baking paper in place).
Grab your large mixing bowl, spatula, electric hand whisk/wooden spoon, butter and sugar.
Put the butter and caster sugar in the bowl and mix, using your electric whisk/wooden spoon, until light and fluffy.
Now, grab your egg.
Add your egg to your mixture and mix until well combined.
Now grab your lemon zest.
Add your lemon zest to your mixture and mix until your lemon zest is well distributed in your mixture.
Next, grab your flour.
Now, mixing all the time, add a little bit of your flour at a time to your mixture until your mixture resembles a stiff dough.
Grabbing your icing sugar and rolling pin, sprinkle some on your work surface and also place some onto your rolling pin.
Place your cookie dough onto your work surface and roll out the dough to roughly ¼ inch thick.
Grab your Easter cookie cutters, palette knife and prepared baking trays/cookie sheets.
Then, using your Easter cookie cutters, cut out various shapes.
Using your palette knife, lift the cookies onto your baking trays/cookie sheets.
Place your baking trays/cookie sheets into your pre-heated oven and bake for 14 minutes.
After this time, take your cookies out of the oven and leave to cool on your cooling rack for 10 minutes on the tray, then transfer off your tray onto your cooling rack to cool completely.
Serve and enjoy!
