Lemony Poppyseed Cookies

This is basically a butter cookie with lemon and poppyseeds added. One of my favourites (who can resist butter cookies?!?!) that's very easy to make and also foolproof.

Here's the recipe:
What you need :
  • 110gm butter
  • 30 gm white sugar
  • 50gm brown sugar
  • 200gm all-purpose flour
  • 1 tbsp poppy seeds
  • 1 tsp lemon zest
  • 1/2 tsp lemon essence (optional, to give it a more pronounced lemon flavour)

What to do :
  1. Beat the butter and sugars until creamy and fluffy.
  2. Add in sifted flour, poppy seeds, lemon zest and essence. Mix and form into a dough.
  3. Shape dough into a log (or triangle in my case), wrap with parchment paper and place in the fridge for it to firm up abit.
  4. Take out dough and cut into half centimeter thick slices (or if u want, u can roll it out and use cookie cutters).
  5. Place onto a baking tray lined with baking paper and bake @180 degrees for 18mins.
  6. Makes abt 30 pcs.
