Lemon crisp little morsels are from a site that I am a member of Keiko’s Cake, she is a world class pastry chef- and she offers novice to expert recipes for cakes, cookies…everything! Its an awesome site, and I just wanted to share this recipe. These are lemon flavor cookies, glazed with apricot and lemon icing (delicious, yummy topped with mmmmmmm)

This recipe is a novice level, the ingredients are easy to obtain in a local market…so there is no reason or excuse you can make to not try these delightful cookies.



Lemon sable

Butter 90 g
Icing sugar 75 g
Flour 150 g
Lemon zests of one lemon
Egg 25 g

All ingredients must be cold

Apricot jam 100 g
Water 20 ml
Lemon juice ½ lemon
Icing sugar

Whenever I need to make cookies, I use a processor…unless they are piped cookies…less strain on my arms..lol!

Process the butter, icing sugar, lemon zests, and flour until you have lots of beach sand!

Then also mix in the egg.



Wrap the dough in plastic wrap and put it in the refrigerator for 30min-1hr

Flour the table and the dough well. Roll out a 0.1 inches. Use your favorite cookie cutters, then work the
cut-offs into a ball and start over until all the dough is used up. The size of my cookie cutter
is circular 1.3 x 2in.  (I roll my dough out in between 2 sheets of wax paper! The dough wont stick to the wax paper, like it will parchment, and the wax paper wont stick to itself like cling film)

Place the cookies on the baking paper.
Bake for 20 minutes in your pre-heated oven at 180°C (356°F).

While the cookies are in the oven, bring the apricot jam and water to a boil and let it cook until the jam thickens.

After baking, brush the cookies with the cooked jam and set aside until the jam dried.

For the lemon icing, squeeze a lemon and mix in icing sugar until you get a paste consistency…like Elmer’s glue (LoL!!!) I used 5tbsp to 1 1/2tbsp lemon juice.
