|Lemon Mint Cookies|
I didn't bake much this summer since it was too hot, but I did try one new recipe - lemon mint cookies. This is a great combination for a summer treat and goes well with a cold glass of ice tea.
These are very fast to put together and bake quickly so you don't need to use your hot oven for a long period.
Here is the recipe:
Butter 80 grams (softened)
Sugar 80 grams
1 Egg yolk
Lemon juice 2 tablespoons
Flour 200 grams
Baking powder ½ teaspoon (sifted with the flour)
100 Mint leaves (chop about 60 of them)
1. Put butter in a bowl and mix with sugar until soft then add the egg yolk. Add the lemon juice.
2. Add the flour and mix with a spatula. Add the chopped mint leaves. Roll into a ball and cover with plastic. Put in the refrigerator for at least 30 minutes before using.3. To bake, use a teaspoon to spoon out pieces (about 15 grams each) and put on a baking sheet. Use a fork to push down each piece. Place a mint leaf on top before baking.
4. Bake at 170 Celsius degrees at for 15 – 20 minutes. Happy eating.
