Lemon Honey Cookies

Leave a comment

Described by my husband as ‘little lemon puddings’ these biscuits definitely have something more of a cakey texture than the regular biscuit. As you take them from the oven as they begin to brown, they retain a soft and delicate centre that is more like a pudding than a biscuit. My whole family thought they were delicious, so much so that 24 has reduced to 6 overnight. They are tasty and moreish and just like a little lemon pudding in one or two bites.

 

Lemon Honey Cookies
24 cookies

1/2 cup granulated sugar
7 tablespoons butter, softened
2 teaspoons grated lemon rind
1/3 cup honey
1/2 teaspoon lemon extract
1 large egg
1 3/4 cups all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 cup plain Greek yogurt
Cooking spray
1 cup powdered sugar
2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
2 teaspoons grated lemon rind

Preheat oven to 180C.
Beat first 3 ingredients with a mixer at medium speed until light and fluffy.
Add honey, extract, and egg; beat until well-blended. Lightly spoon flour into dry measuring cups; level with a knife. Combine flour, baking powder, and salt, stirring well with a whisk.
Add flour mixture to sugar mixture alternately with yogurt, beginning and ending with flour mixture. Drop by level tablespoons 5cm apart onto baking sheets coated with cooking spray.
Bake at 180C for 12 minutes or until lightly browned.

Combine powdered sugar and juice in a small bowl; stir with a whisk.
Brush powdered sugar mixture evenly over hot cookies. Sprinkle evenly with 2 teaspoons rind. (I didn’t bother with the extra rind on the top)
Remove cookies from pan; cool on wire racks.
