Lemon Curd Cookies


 


 

Marinate lemon curd cakes with ginger and cinnamon. I use homemade lemon curd for easy and delicious cookies.

 

Today I am reposting my lemon thumbprint cookies with a little bit of modification. I also use cinnamon along with ginger in the dough which makes these cookies delicious.

 

* Ingredients :

 

° 1 cup unsalted butter, soft

° 1 cup granulated sugar

° 3 large egg yolks

° 1 tablespoon of grated lemon peel

° 1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice

° 1 teaspoon kosher salt

° 3 cups all-purpose flour

° 1 cup lemon curd, or store bought

 

* Instructions :

 

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. And cut two baking sheets in half in parchment.

 

Mix butter and sugar in a large bowl with a mixer until well combined.

Whisk in the yolks / lemon peel / lemon juice / salt as well, and whisk in the flour until moist lumps form. Gather the dough together in a bowl to tie it.

 

Form 1 tsp of dough to 1 inch balls.

Place the balls on ready-made sheets, one inch apart.

Use a finger milled, and create a deep indentation in the center of each ball.

 

Bake the biscuits until they are firm and golden in color, for 21 minutes.

Remove the cookies from the oven and fill the blanks with curd directly. Return to the oven and bake for 3 minutes to form the curd.

 

- Bake the remaining cookies and the edges of the powder gently with confectioners' sugar.
