Lemon Shortbread Cookies


2 tbsp fresh lemon juice

2 tbsp fresh lemon zest

2 cups / 4 sticks very soft butter (leave outside overnight)

4 cups self-rising flour

1 cup Sugar

Cookie Cutters


Preheat oven to 350 F.

Line a baking sheet with liner

Whip Lemon juice, zest, sugar and butter till creamy

Add flour and make dough. Wrap dough in 2 cylindrical rolls and wrap in plastic wrap. Refrigerate for 1 hour.

Using the chilled dough cut out 1/2 inch rounds with knife or cookie cutter.

Place on baking sheet and bake for 11 – 13 minutes. Watch the color and keep it light cream.

Remove sheet and cool for 5 minutes, place cookies on wire rack to cool some more. I was able to just place them directly on my serving platter.


The cookie dough is good for cutting with different cookie cutters.
