These lemon cookies are soft and chewy and absolutely delicious. Coat them in powdered sugar before baking for amazing crinkle cookies everyone will love!
One of the most popular recipes on my website is this one for raspberry lemon cookies. It's been the most popular recipe almost from the day I posted it and it hasn't slowed down.
Everyone that makes those cookies loves them. Everyone I've made them for loves them.
I'm not even exaggerating when I say that they seem to be popular with everyone that tries them.
Which, let's be honest, is a little odd. With most recipes, some people love them, some hate them, some think they're just okay.... you don't usually have the same response from everybody that tries it.
And that's totally fine, we can't all like the same things. But everyone likes those raspberry lemon cookies.
So, it was really only logical to post a recipe for plain and simple lemon cookies as well. Since clearly, we all enjoy soft and chewy lemon cookies.
But really, what's not to like?
They're easy to make, filled with sweet and tangy lemon flavour from fresh lemon juice and lemon zest and mix up easily in just a few minutes.
You do need to chill this dough, it's way too sticky to roll into balls and coat in powdered sugar right after mixing it, but after chilling it for an hour it's doable.
They bake up soft and chewy with that crackly, crinkly texture from the powdered sugar, and they stay soft and chewy for days.
I think these lemon cookies disappeared in two days. There's only five of us, that's kind of ridiculous.
It really shouldn't have surprised me though. Like I said, everyone loves lemon cookies!
