Directions

Print
  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F ( 175 degrees C ). Grease cookie sheets.
  2. In a medium bowl, stir together the flour, sugar, baking soda, salt, and lemon zest. Make a well in the center and fill it with the oil, lemon juice, and vanilla. Stir everything together until it forms a dough. Alternate method: Put everything into the food processor and blend until dough forms.
  3. Drop cookie dough by teaspoonfuls, about 2 inches apart, onto the prepared cookie sheet. Bake for 10 to 12 minutes in the preheated oven. Edges should be golden brown. For a softer cookie, bake for only 7 minutes. Cool on racks, and store in an airtight container.

I loved these cookes. Preparation is very easy--the hardest part was zesting the lemons. I had hoped it would have been a little more tart; I will try to add a bit more lemon juice and decrease ...

Although I hate to zest citrus, this recipe is worth it! The cookies came out crisp on the edges and softer in the middle, and they are sweet and tangy. I only got three dozen, so I must have ...

I've been baking for twenty years, so I have had time and experience enough to know a good cookie when I see it. a) These have far too much oil which makes them greasy and puffy. b) They spread ...

Eh. These were okay. Very crispy, not the lemony-est cookies I've ever had. I might make them again in a pinch, but I think I'll keep looking for the perfect lemon crisp.
