Clarion County Recipe of the Day: Lemon Tea Cookies

Friday, April 21, 2017 @ 12:04 AM

Posted by J.C. Taggart

A rich and buttery treat!

Lemon Tea Cookies


3/4 cup butter, softened
1/2 cup sugar
1 large egg yolk
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
2 cups all-purpose flour
1/4 cup finely chopped walnuts

3 tablespoons butter, softened
4-1/2 teaspoons lemon juice
3/4 teaspoon grated orange peel
1-1/2 cups confectioners’ sugar
2 drops yellow food coloring


~In a large bowl, cream butter and sugar until light and fluffy. Beat in the egg yolk and vanilla. Gradually add flour and mix well. Shape into two 14-in. rolls; reshape each roll into a 14×1-1/8×1-1/8-in. block. Wrap each in plastic. Refrigerate overnight.

~Unwrap and cut into 1/4-in. slices. Place 2 in. apart on ungreased baking sheets. Sprinkle half of the cookies with nuts, gently pressing into dough. Bake at 400° for 8 to 10 minutes (or until golden brown around the edges). Remove to wire racks to cool.

~In a small bowl, cream the butter, lemon juice, and orange peel until fluffy. Gradually add confectioners’ sugar until smooth. Tint yellow. Spread about 1 teaspoon on bottoms of the plain cookies; place nut topped cookies over filling.

~Makes about 4-1/2 dozen.
