TWD DC Rewind: Lemon Sugar Cookies

lemon sugar cookies

I always look forward to these Rewind weeks to play a bit of catch-up on a TWD recipe that I skipped for one reason or another. As it turns out, I’m not missing much off the list of completed recipes from Dorie’s Cookies, and now that I’ve ticked these Lemon Sugar Cookies off of it, I think I’m just one bake behind (that would be the World Peace Cookies, but I have made them before).

These cookies are classic old-fashioned sugar cookies with a lemon twist. The lemon zest, juice (and also a dot of lemon extract for me) in the dough really do make them bake up with, not only a definite lemon flavor, but also a sunny yellow color. I rolled them in vanilla sugar before baking, hence the speckles. I made just a quarter recipe, and with my cookie scoop, wound up with a baker’s dozen. That extra one was my secret baker’s treat, you can be sure! These were great, and I followed Dorie’s suggested baking time for chewy centers, because that’s how I prefer them.

For the recipe, see Dorie’s Cookies by Dorie Greenspan. Don’t forget to check out the rest of this week’s rewind on the TWD Blogroll!

  1. I loved these too. Great photo!

  2. From memory, these were lovely light cookies. I think if you’ve made World Peace Cookies before, you are all caught up.

  3. Funny I did not remember these, I had to look them up to see if I made them. I did and declared them the best ever. Too many good recipes to remember. Kudos to you for being caught up.

    • haha— that is funny! i know what you mean though. when i made the list of what’s left from BCM, i had to double-check several things to see if we’d made them or not.

  4. I’ve been wanting to make these! Looks and sounds good!

  5. these are amazing. we must have made them in winter/early spring of 17. Thanks for the prompt. I think I might try them with a seville orange that just arrived from California.

  6. (I am playing catch-up :)) Did you add in the extract for extra “zing” in the lemon flavor?
