Meyer lemon cookies are bright and bold with citrus flavor. This sweet treat is perfect with a cup of tea.
Spring has finally sprung! With warmer weather and more sunshine, comes one of my favorite things – Meyer Lemons. I swear I become a little more smitten with this citrus fruit every year. And while they once seemed a bit obscure, they’ve definitely become readily available in my local markets, which make me one happy girl. To me, they signify spring and sunshine, so I look forward to them every season.
If you’ve never heard of Meyer Lemons, allow me enlighten you a bit. They’re native to China and are a cross between a regular lemon and a mandarin orange. They’re sweeter, smaller and rounder than traditional lemons and have a more golden-yellow appearance. I pretty much view them as a lemon’s cuter, tinier sister.
A few weeks ago, I snagged a gorgeous bag organic Meyer Lemons and I knew exactly what I wanted to create with them – Meyer Lemon Cake and Meyer Lemon Sugar Cookies. The cake was absolutely delicious, but these cookies - they are incredible.
The base recipe for Meyer Lemon Sugar Cookies is adapted from a recipe that I’ve been fond of for years. If you’re a lime lover, you simply must check out the Chewy Lime Coconut version on My Baking Addiction. I can pretty much guarantee they’ll quickly become your favorite spring cookie.
Speaking of cookies, while you’re baking up this recipe, you should totally just go ahead and have a full on cookie-a-thon because I don’t think you’ll be able to resist these Oatmeal Coconut Chocolate Chip Cookies or these Strawberry Shortcake Cookies – seriously does it get any better than strawberries and cookies? I think not.
Meyer Lemon Sugar Cookies are brimming with flavor thanks to loads of zest and the chewy texture puts them over the top. A bit of coconut makes them a little more complex and pumps up the spring flavor.
