When I need a few moments to relax, I make myself a nice cup of hot tea. There is something so soothing about tea, that I always feel more relaxed after having a cup. The only thing that makes my tea better is enjoying a nice freshly baked cookie to go with it. While pretty much any freshly baked cookie will do, one of my favorites is a soft lemon cookie.
I have tasted many a lemon cookie in my lifetime. I like lemon bars, but sometimes I just long for something a little less sweet. One of my all time favorites was the Lemon Pastry Creme cookie that the Girl Scouts made several years ago.
I am still waiting for the Girl Scouts to bring those back.
At least, I can hope.
In the meantime, I make these super simple lemon cookies using a boxed lemon cakes mix.
They are so simple and perfect for brunch, or tea.
1 box lemon cake mix
1/2 cup butter (1 stick) softened
2 tablespoons powdered sugar (optional)
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Line baking sheet with parchment paper. Combine listed ingredients and spoon by rounded teaspoons onto cookie sheet. Bake 8-10 minutes. Let cool a few minutes before removing from sheet. You can sprinkle them with a touch of powdered sugar, if you wish.
Have one with me won’t you? Do you drink hot tea? What is your favorite flavor?
