Help...I have put my foot into my mouth and volunteered to make 100 lemon sugar cookies, now I need a great recipe.
You could just make the NFSC recipe here on CC and add lemon juice ot extract or even the fine rind...Yum!!
I know some people on here like to use lemon emulsion. You can order it off the internet if your local cake shop doesn't have it. It's very strong.
You can use your faourite sugar cookie recipe and just sub 1/2 of the vanilla for lemon oil. I use it all the time and I get a lot of compliments.
Go to Wiltons website
Use the rolled sugar cookie recipe and add a teaspoon of finely grated lemon zest or add half the vanilla extract along with lemon extract.
Hope this helps,
Happy Baking and Decorating,
TIP: If you add zest to your cookie dough, add it into your white sugar before you cream the butter in. "Rub" it all back and forth quickly using both of your hands. This makes sure it doesn't clump up in your dough AND it makes it taste stronger because you are getting the citrus oils out of the zest.
I use that tip whenever I add zest to anything. SO much better!
Great tip Antonia! I'm gonna do that from now on!
Just tried your royal icing btw, love it!
You can also add lemon flavoring to your icing or fondant.
