Lemon Poppy Seed Cookies

These Lemon Poppy Seed Cookies are a great summertime cookie! The fresh lemon zest gives these cookies a bright yummy taste!

2/3 cup granulated sugar
1/2 cup (1 stick) butter, softened
1 egg
1 1/4 cup all-purpose flour
2 teaspoons grated lemon peel
1 1/4 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 tablespoon poppy seeds

Pre-heat oven to 350 degrees. Beat granulated sugar and butter in large bowl until creamy. Beat in egg and lemon peel. Combine flour, baking soda and salt; gradually add to butter mixture. Beat in poppy seeds.

Drop dough by heaping teaspoonfuls and bake 11 to 12 minutes or until edges are lightyly browned. Makes about 2 dozen cookies.

  1. The recipe looks yummy but you forgot to indicate how much flour the recipe requires! Is this a trick just to see if anyone reads your recipes? Is there a prize for the person that finds the mistake? LOL

  2. Opps! I wonder how they would come out without flour! Probably a bit more like brittle or something.Glad to know someone out there is keeping an eye out! And I do notice that you are watching over us! Thanks!
