Oh, lemon. The ultimate warm-weather favorite. Spring is finally here and what better way to celebrate than with lots of lemon treats!
While I waited for my Super Moist, Easy Lemon Cake to bake, I decided to make some chewy Lemon Sugar Cookies. I used to buy a $1 pack of them at the grocery store ALL the time. They’re dangerously good, especially if you’re a lemon lover like me.
Easy, Chewy Lemon Sugar Cookies
This recipe is super easy, quick, and includes FRESH lemon juice, lemon zest, and lemon extract for the perfect amount and kind of fresh, robust lemon flavor.
Like I mention in my other lemon recipe posts, it is important to use FRESH lemon juice while baking. Fresh lemon juice (and zest) creates a more natural, refreshing lemon taste.
I understand squeezing lemons by hand can be a hassle. This is why I recommend using a lemon press like this Manuel Citrus Press Juicer. It gets every last drop of juice from your lemons. There aren’t any seeds in your juice. It saves time and effort.
How to Make Lemon Sugar Cookies
This recipe is super simple. I recommend creaming the butter and sugar together first, but you could throw everything in at once and it’d still be great. It’s a very low maintenance recipe with awesome results.
