Lemon Crunch Cookies {Heirloom Cookie sheets giveaway}

I get questions all the time by email about what kind of pans I use to cook and bake. What brand cookie sheets do I use. What type of cupcake liners do I buy.

And for many many years (at least 15) I have been using stoneware cookie sheets to bake my cookies. I was introduced to them years ago at a Pampered Chef party, and had been a loyal fan forever. Notice I said “had”???

Yep. It’s true. I’ve been converted. I was asked by Heirloom brand Cookie Sheets to review one of their Heavy Duty Stainless Steel cookie sheets. So, I did what any baker would do, I tested it out. Using half the dough on my tried and true stoneware and half the dough on these cookie sheets, I went to baking some delicious lemon cookies.

And guess what? They baked up identically. Seriously. That never happens. Usually with a metal sheet the bottoms brown faster. Nope. Not this time. Identical. So here’s the thing. My stoneware baking sheets are HEAVY. And not too versatile. These Heirloom cookie sheets are fantastic.

And my husbands favorite part? They can go in the dishwasher. Yep. Tried it. Works. Clean and shiny with no scrubbing. They store a little easier than my heavy stoneware too.

Now, I just need to get more of them, one cookie sheet is not enough for this girl.

But, YOU all? The winner of today’s giveaway will win TWO cookie sheets. I’m a bit jealous. (I can’t enter my own giveaway, right?)

Before we get to the giveaway though, let’s talk about the cookies I baked. Lemon Crunch.

Why the crunch? Well, I added Lemon Oreos. You heard me right. Amazing little cookies. Oreo pretty much is a genius cookie maker. I also added in some Sugar Free JELL-O lemon gelatin (which keeps these soft and chewy). So yes. Chewy cookies with a crunch. It’s really the best of both worlds!

**if you can’t find the Lemon Oreos, substitute any lemon sandwich cookie instead. And cry just a little bit. Then eat a cookie and feel better!

Lemon Crunch Cookies

Yield: 4 dozen cookies

Ingredients:

  • 1 cup unsalted butter, softened
  • 1 cup granulated sugar
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar
  • 1 pkg (0.3oz) Sugar Free JELL-O lemon gelatin mix
  • 1/2 tsp kosher salt
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 Tbsp vanilla extract
  • 2 cup all purpose flour
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 14 lemon Oreos (or lemon sandwich cookies), chopped
  • 1 bag (12oz) white chocolate morsels

Directions:

  1. In mixing bowl, beat butter with sugars. Add in JELL-O mix, salt and eggs, mixing until completely combined.
  2. Add in vanilla. Add flour and baking soda, mix completely. Fold in chopped cookies and morsels.
  3. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper. Drop cookie dough by large tablespoon onto cookie sheet. Bake in a 375 degree oven for 10-13 minutes. Remove and cool on wire rack. Store in airtight container for up to one week.

  146. Lilann Taylor

    I just got through popping a sheet of cookies in the oven. I only had 1/4 oz. of jello to put in the cookies so I added some lemon juice and lemon zest. My resident cookie dough eater (my daughter) assured me that the dough tasted great and had enough of a lemon taste. I should be able to judge for myself in 3 minutes. Thanks for the recipe.

  147. Lilann Taylor

    I have a quick question. When I bought the sugar free gelatin and brought it home I realized that it only contained .30 ozs. so I added some lemon zest and lemon juice. The cookies didn’t last but 1 day so I went back to the store to buy more ingredients to make some more. Am I actually supposed to use 1 oz. of the gelatin (which means I would have to buy at least 3 packages to get close to 1 oz.) or just 1 package of .30 ozs? I can’t find any sugar free gelatin that has 1 oz.

  148. Peanut Butter , then Ginger yum!

  149. Sheryl

    I finally found the Lemon Oreos and made the Lemon Crunch Cookies last night. They are Great!!! two questions though… they baked out very flat. Any suggestions for them to stay a little thicker???
    Also, any suggestions to make them just a little less sweet??
    Thanks,
    Sheryl
