I love the cookies at Paradise Bakery and Cafe, but we don’t have one nearby. So, when I had a craving for their lemon cookies, I had to try to come up with my own version.
These Tart and Tangy Lemon Cookies weren’t an exact copy, but they were really tasty and definitely satisfied my craving. Even though they were fairly tart with a good lemon flavor, my two-year old ate them up.They were also really soft and tender, which I love in a cookie. I think that was due to chilling the dough overnight.
My first batch (pre-chilling) was more cakey, but after I chilled the dough, they were extremely soft and tender. Feel free to dust them with powdered sugar while they’re still warm; we couldn’t wait, and they were delicious.
