Recipe Type: Baking
Serves: 24 cookies
Ingredients
  • 160 g butter
  • 260g flour
  • 20g corn flour (cornstarch)
  • 125 sugar
  • Zest of two lemons
  • 2 tablespoons lemon juice
  • Pinch of salt
  • Teaspoon vanilla
Instructions
  1. For these cookies, the dough must rest for several hours in the refrigerator, preferably, overnight. Beat the butter, add the sugar, lemon zest, vanilla and lemon juice. Mix everything together until well integrated. Add the dry ingredients: the flour, cornstarch and salt and mix everything together until it is well mixed.
  2. Roll the dough into a tube, about two inches in diameter. Wrap with plastic wrap and leave it in the refrigerator for several hours or overnight.
  3. Remove it from the refrigerator and unwrap. Preheat oven to 180 degrees Celsius. With a sharp knife, cut the dough into thin rounds, place on a baking sheet and bake cookies for 15 minutes. Dust with powdered sugar to serve.

  1. I realky, really wish the ingredient amounts were converted. I am wanting to make this recipe, I am not an exsperienced baker. I am having the hardest time finding how to convert to cups. So disapointed!

  2. Sorry. Here you have the converted amounts. Enjoy the recipe, it’s unforgettable! Best wishes!

    3/4 cups butter
    2 1/4 cups flour
    1/4 cup corn flour
    1 cup powdered sugar
    Zest of two lemons
    2 tablespoons lemon juice
    Pinch of salt
    Teaspoon vanilla

  3. I tried a conversion chart. Not sure how accurate my measurements were. Also I’m assuming 125 Sugar means 125 Grams of sugar?
    The dough came out flaky. It is sitting in the fridge now. Will update tomorrow.
