1 egg

150 grams (1 cup) flour

1 organic lemonπŸ‹

200 grams (1 cup) sugar – or less for less-sweet cookiesπŸ‹πŸ‹πŸ‹

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.

You can substitute oranges or tangerines for the lemons in this recipe!

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. πŸ’™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.
