I baked today. I had hopes that some could have been left over for gifts.
Ever hear of Lemon Chip Cookies?
I didn't until I got this great cookbook as a gift. Everything in it comes out fastasmagorically wonderful!!
2 cups all purpose flour
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon ground coriander
1 & 1/2 sticks salted butter (3/4 cup), softened
1 cup granulated sugar
2 Large eggs
1 & 1/2 teaspoon lemon extract
9 ounces mini chocolate chips (about 1 1/2 cups)
Just an aside..I only used 1 cup of chips. and I didn't have ground coriander, I had whole seeds, so I just pounded the seeds with my mortar and pestle and it worked fine.
Preheat over to 300 degrees F.
In a medium bowl combine flour, baking soda and coriander with a wire whisk. Set aside.
In a large bowl cream butter and sugar with an electric mixer at medium speed to form a grainy paste.
Add eggs and lemon extract and beat well.Scrape down sides of bowl.
Add the flour mixture and the chocolate chips and blend at low speed just until combined. Do not overmix.
Drop dough by teaspoons onto ungreased cookie sheets, 1 1/2 inches apart.
Bake for 14-15 minutes. Do Not Brown.
Immediately transfer cookies with a spatula to a cool flat surface.
Yield: about 4 dozen.
And wouldn't you know. All the cookies are GONE! EATEN in one day!!! Between my little ones' K class party and afterschool and after supper snacks. There's none left. I guess that means they're good. :-)
I love sharing recipes that work.
