I was just looking at my cookie archive and noticed I only share ONE new cookie recipe in 2017. These Halloween Peanut Butter Cookie Cups were the only recipe I shared last year! I figured that had to change this year, so look at me now. This is my second cookie recipe of the year, you may remember these Gingerdoodle cookies I shared last month? Soft and chewy molasses cookies rolled in cinnamon sugar. The perfect combination of a snickerdoodle and ginger snap!
Well, I took that basic cookie recipe and lemon-ized it. <——I also created a new verb!
But seriously, let’s talk about these lemon crinkle cookies! Using the dough recipe for Gingerdoodles, I wanted to keep that same soft and chewy texture (without the molasses flavor, obviously). I swapped out the molasses for light corn syrup, and added in some lemon zest! Lots of lemon zest. I also took out the cinnamon and just rolled these cookies and granulated sugar. For an added treat, drizzle a little melted white chocolate over the top!
The result? Perfect chewy Lemon Crinkle Cookies. I think you’re going to love these cookies, and they freeze well too! These Orange, Lemon, and Lime Citrus Cookies are very similar, and rolled in sugar and citrus zest. Oh my word, I think I could survive on fruity cookies 🙂
Favorite Cookie Recipes:
While we’re talking about cookies, how about I share some of my favorite cookie recipes? Let’s start with these Twix Cookies. I mean, if you love the candy bar, these cookies are the next best thing! I usually only make them during the holidays though, as they’re hard to resist! My next favorite cookie would be these White Chocolate and Cranberry Cookies. Chewy and soft, I love the flavor combination in this recipe! Remember those Iced Oatmeal Cookies you could buy in the store? Well my recipe is even better, haha! But seriously, they’re pretty darn amazing. I certainly can’t make a list of favorite cookies without including Chelsea’s Snickerdoodle cookies. They really are one of the best I’ve tried! Also, these Peanut Butter Chocolate Crinkle Cookies from Ashley are quite delicious too. Who doesn’t love a peanut butter cookie, with chocolate, dunked in sugar???
