A kid friendly recipe, these Butter Cookies are great fun to decorate and make a great Christmas cookie. Lightly flavored with vanilla, fresh lemon zest, and lemon juice, these cookies have a rich buttery flavor and texture. Dipped into melted chocolate, the cookies can then be decorated as you, or the kiddos, see fit. Sprinkles, chopped nuts, crushed candy, the choice is yours. Be sure to refrigerate the dough for at least an hour before rolling out and shaping the cookies.

Ingredients

  • 200 grams butter (at room temperature)
  • 350 grams white flour
  • 125 grams sugar
  • 1 teaspoon granulated sugar
  • 1/8 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice
  • 1 tablespoon lemon zest
  • 1 egg white
  • salt
  • 100 grams dark chocolate
  • candy sprinkles

Directions

  1. Mix the butter, white flour, sugar, granulated sugar, vanilla extract, lemon juice, lemon zest, egg white, and a pinch of salt in a large bowl. Knead until the ingredients are completely mixed.
  2. Form a dough ball, cover it with plastic wrap, and let it sit in the refrigerator for 1 hour.
  3. After 45 minutes, preheat the oven to 210 degrees Celsius.
  4. Place the dough on the countertop, flatten it using a rolling pin, and use a cookie mold to form the cookies.
  5. Place the cookies on a cooking tray with a layer of parchment paper on it, and bake for 12 minutes.
  6. Remove the cookies from the oven and let them cool off completely.
  7. Melt the chocolate using the microwave and dip the cookies in it.
  8. Cover them with candy sprinkles and serve.

These buttery cookies are very good without the melted chocolate and sprinkles but of course, those two things perk them up even more! I make a batch before my children get home from school then they enjoy decorating them with their friends.
