Lemon Poppy Seed Cookies
|I had such a fabulous time making all of these Lemon Poppy Seed Cookie themed products, I just had to share a Lemon Poppy Seed Cookie recipe. This cookie recipe is from the cookbook Baking Illustrated from America’s Test Kitchen. These cookies are soft and chewy with a fabulous lemon flavor to them. Mmm. Don’t miss out on these cookies. Perfect if you want to have a tea party! You can even send your guests home with their own Lemon Poppy Seed Cookie inspired line. What a great way to be the perfect hostess and the talk of the town!

Preheat oven to 325° F. Prepare a baking sheet by using parchment or nonstick cooking spray. In a bowl, cream the butter, sugar and brown sugar together until light and fluffy. Add the lemon zest, egg and vanilla to the mixture. Blend well. Add the dry ingredients and mix until combined. In a separate bowl place the 1/2 cup of sugar. Fill a second bowl with cold water. Dip your hands in the water and shake off the excess. Roll a heaping tablespoon of cookie dough into a ball. Roll the ball of dough in the bowl of sugar and place on a baking sheet. Continue with the rest of the dough. Take a drinking glass and spread a little butter on its base. Use the glass to flatten the cookies until they are 3/4 inch thick, dipping the glass in the sugar to prevent sticking. Bake until the edges are golden brown, 15 to 18 minutes. Remove the cookies from the oven and allow to cool. Enjoy!
