Lemon Tea Cookies

Welcome to The Homemaking Party! I'm so happy you're here visiting as I've got a very yummy recipe for you to try out! Do you love lemon? I do! Lemon cake, lemon tea, lemon chicken...it's one of my favorite flavors. Today I'm showing off a recipe for Lemon Tea Cookies. Unlike any other recipe I've found, these ones are definitely full of tart lemon flavor.

Lemon Tea Cookies
2 c. flour
1 c. powdered sugar
1/2 c. cornstarch
1 c. butter, softened
1 egg yolk
juice and zest of 1 lemon

Combine flour, powdered sugar, and cornstarch in a bowl and mix with a wire whisk. Zest the lemon and squeeze out the juice. Then stir in the zest, juice and yolk until it's all well blended. Scoop the mixture onto ungreased cookie sheets and bake at 350ยบ for 10-12 minutes or until lightly golden around the edges and not doughy in the middle.
