100 grams (1/2 cup) soft butter
150 grams (1 cup) flour
1 organic lemon🍋
200 grams (1 cup) sugar – or less for less-sweet cookies🍋🍋🍋
2 tsp baking powder
Pre-heat your oven to 350 F. Mix the butter and sugar and add the egg. Mix until fluffy add the flour little by little and then add your baking powder.
Using a zester, scrape the skin and add to the mix. Then using a juicer – take the juice and add to the mix. If using an orange just use one half of the orange for juice. 💙NOTE! – if making orange cookies, cut the sugar in half!
Mix and place with a tablespoon on a cookie sheet. Bake for about 10 minutes.
