Powdered Sugar Lemon Cake Cookie Recipe

When it comes to powdered sugar, I am definitely a fan. In fact, one time when I was younger and working at a restaurant, I was so desperate for a sweet fix that I dipped my finger in a bowl of (what I thought was) powdered sugar and quickly paid for my lapse in good judgement by the choking (like, literally CHOKING) realization that it was actually BAKING POWDER.

Let me tell you, you will never make that mistake twice.

Thankfully, my love for powdered sugar still stands and today comes your way in the form of these absolutely delicious and SUPER easy Lemon cookies! My husband who loves all things lemon canNOT stop eating them!

These are so simple to make and only require a few ingredients. You will definitely want to add them to your list of items to bake this month!

Super Simple NO CHILL Sugar Cookie Recipe!

Sugar cookies. Can we all agree that they are really kind of a pain to make from scratch?

First you have to make the dough. Then you have to chill the dough. Then you have to roll the dough. Then you have to find cute cookie cutters to cut the dough. Then you have to bake the cutely cut out dough shapes to the point of just barely brown, but not really brown at all.

I’d like to say I had found a way to cut out ALL of the above steps, but alas…that would basically mean a post consisting of telling you where to purchase pre-baked sugar cookies (or slice and bake cookies, yuck) and honestly, I doubt you need instructions on how to do that.

I did find a recipe that cuts out the “chill” portion of the process though with no remarkable difference in cookie texture or flavor.

These cookies are the perfect canvas for decorating, or you can just sprinkle some sugar on them right out of the oven!

(This recipe is part of my 7 Days of Cookies series. Check back every day this week for a NEW cookie recipe!)

Super Simple No Chill Sugar Cookie Recipe

Ingredients: 

  • 1 cup unsalted butter (softened)
  • 1 cup white sugar
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1/2 tsp almond extract (you can omit this, but I think this adds to the flavor big time)
  • 1 egg
  • 3 tsps baking powder
  • 3 cups all purpose flour

Directions: 

1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees

2. Cream butters and sugar together. Add egg and vanilla and mix thoroughly.

3. Mix dry ingredients and slowly add dry ingredients to wet ingredients.

4. Roll dough out to about 1/4 inch thick.

5. Cut with cookie cutters and place on an ungreased baking sheet.

6. Bake for 6-8 minutes until just barely brown on the bottoms.

7. Decorate or sprinkle with sugar!

Enjoy!

Iced Oatmeal Cookie Recipe

Oatmeal cookies. You either love them or you hate them. I truly love them!

I have shared my favorite Oatmeal Chocolate Chip cookie recipe in the past, but this one is a close 2nd. I’m not sure why, but these cookies have always seemed like a holiday staple to me.

Don’t skip the glaze, it’s what truly makes the cookie. Oh, and don’t forget to drink a glass of ice cold milk with these cookies. It’s mandatory!

See how my cookies are kind of flat on one side? These spread a decent amount, so don’t skip chilling the dough first and leave plenty of room for spreading if you want perfectly round cookies.

(This recipe is part of my 7 Days of Cookies series. Check back every day this week for a NEW cookie recipe!)

Iced Oatmeal Cookie Recipe

Ingredients:

  • 1 cup butter brought to room temperature
  • 1 cup light brown sugar
  • ½ cup sugar
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 2 cups old-fashioned rolled oats (crush in food processor)
  • 2 cups all purpose flour
  • 1 tablespoon baking powder
  • ½ teaspoon baking soda
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • 2 teaspoons cinnamon
  • ½ teaspoon ground nutmeg
  • 2 cups powdered sugar
  • milk

 

Directions: 

1. Cream butter and sugar together until creamy

2. Add eggs and vanilla and continue to beat until creamy

3. Mix your crushed oats, flour, baking powder, baking soda, salt, cinnamon and nutmeg. Slowly add combined dry ingredients to wet ingredients until fully combined.

4. Refrigerate the dough for at least 30 minutes, meanwhile preheat oven to 350 degrees

5. Roll cookie dough into 2 inch balls and slightly smush them down on your cookie sheet

6. Bake for 8-10 minutes (I like to underbake my cookies slightly and let them finish baking a bit on the pan after they come out of the oven!).

7. Mix the confectioners sugar with a bit of milk (start with 1 tablespoon and increase to get the texture you desire) and once the cookies cool a bit, spread the glaze over the tops.

Enjoy!

White Chocolate Chunk Salted Oatmeal Cookies

Do you bake fairly often?

I love to bake (although I hate to wash dishes after baking!).

My favorite thing to bake?

Cookies!

I am a cookie freak.

A homemade cookie freak , that is (okay okay, I’ll totally down a sleeve of Chips Ahoy Chocolate Chip cookies if you hand it to me).

I like experimenting with different cookie recipes and adding different and unique ingredients to my tried and true recipes.

Recently, Silpat sent me one of their Half Size Baking Mats to try out.

I’ve always just baked my cookies on a traditional baking sheet. I’ll admit my cookies do not cook evenly in my oven. I’ve kind of figured out how to make it work. It involves flipping the pan around midway through the baking time…taking the cookies out early and allowing them to cook a bit more on the pan and THEN transferring them to the wire rack to cool.

This often results in great tops and burnt bottom cookies.

Not cool.

I decided to give this Silpat Half Size Baking Mat a try using my White Chocolate Chunk Salted Oatmeal Cookies (say that 3 times fast!).

These cookies never cook evenly for me. I love them, but they don’t love my oven!

I baked the majority of my cookies on the Silpat Half Size Baking Mat and baked one pan just on an old baking sheet I typically use (minus the Silpat Half Size Baking Mat).

The difference is glaringly obvious.

Same oven. Same temp. Same time.

The White Chocolate Chunk Salted Oatmeal Cookies baked on the Silpat are perfectly done. Brown on top and bottom and ready to be immediately moved to the wire rack to cool (they also slid off easily…no cookies crumbled!).

The cookies on the baking sheet are both burnt AND undercooked. This is a problem!

I think the results speak for themselves…I am in LOVE with my Silpat Half Size Baking Mat!

 

White Chocolate Chunk Salted Oatmeal Cookies

inspired by Smitten Kitchen

Ingredients

  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 3/4 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/4 teaspoon table salt
  • 14 tablespoons softened salted butter (I always use salted…you can use unsalted if you want since you’ll be sprinkling the cookies with sea salt)
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1/4 cup packed light brown sugar
  • 1 large egg
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 2 1/2 cups old-fashioned rolled oats
  • 6 oz of white chocolate cut into chunks (you’ll notice I didn’t have all white chocolate! SOMEONE got into the bar before I could bake with it. Hence the random semi sweet chocolate chips in this batch of cookies 😉 )
  • Sea Salt for sprinkling

Directions: 

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees
  2. Cream together the butter and sugar. Add the egg and vanilla.
  3. In a separate bowl mix the flour, baking soda and baking powder together.
  4. Slowlybeat the flour mixture into the sugar mixture.
  5. Add the oatmeal and stir it in.
  6. Add the chocolate chunks
  7. Drop the dough by the tablespoonful onto your Silpat baking mat lined pan ( 😉 ).
  8. Top with a sprinkling of sea salt.
  9. Bake for 10-12 minutes.

These cookies will be crisp, chewy and a bit crunchy. That is how they should be! They are sooo tasty.

Enjoy!

 

 

Easy Oatmeal Cookies

Cookies and Milk: My day is complete!

This is a guest post by Cheryl Siens

Don’t these look just amazing? Enjoy!

Ingredients:  

  • 1 cup butter
  • ¾ cup sugar
  •  1 tsp baking soda
  • 1 cup flour (no need to sift)
  • 2 cups oatmeal (I used Quaker Oats – Quick)
  • 1 egg yolk

Directions: 

  1. Melt butter in microwave safe bowl on HIGH for approximately 1 ½ minutes, then let it cool to room temperature.  Mix in sugar.
  2. Add baking soda, flour, and oatmeal.  Stir thoroughly.
  3. Beat the egg yolk with a fork until it’s thoroughly mixed.  Add it to the bowl and stir until it’s incorporated.
  4. Grease (or spray with Pam) a standard-sized cookie sheet.  Make small balls of dough and place them on the cookie sheet.  Press down with fork in a criss-cross pattern the way you’d do for peanut butter cookies (the pattern won’t stay, but this flattens them)
  5. Bake at 350˚ for 10 to 12 minutes, or until they just start to brown around the edges.  Let the cookies cool for a minute or two on the sheets and then transfer them to a wire rack to finish cooling.
Yield: approximately 5 dozen, depending on cookie size.

The Best Chocolate Chip Cookie Recipe EVER!

Best Chocolate Chip Cookie Recipe

This is THE best chocolate chip cookie recipe on the internet! Guaranteed to make your house the “cool” house. Try the best chocolate chip cookie recipe and let me know what you think!

 

Today we’re going to talk about cookies. Not just any cookies, but CHOCOLATE CHIP COOKIES (yes that word is bolded, italicized AND underlined…if I could add sparkles to it I would have).

Before I had kids, I was on a mission to find the BEST Chocolate Chip Cookie recipe ever.

I had visions of my children declining invitations to friends houses, instead saying “No, come over MY house. My mom makes the best chocolate chip cookies ever“.

Of course, I’d have my hair curled and be wearing a pretty dress with heals and a frilly apron. More than happy to bake cookies for all the neighborhood kids.

Well so far, that hasn’t happened. Give it time though, my kids are only 3 and 1. However, I do believe I’ve found the perfect chocolate chip cookie recipe.

It’s not just about the ingredients! Oh no. It’s also about the techniques!

Get your printer ready for this one!

Best Chocolate Chip Cookie Recipe
adapted from this recipe

 

Ingredients:

  • 1 cup of melted butter
  • 1 cup white sugar
  • 1 cup packed brown sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 3 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 2 teaspoons hot water
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 2 cups semisweet chocolate chips
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
 

 

 

 

  1. Melt the butter in the microwave (be sure to use REAL unsalted butter)
  2. Cream together the butter, white sugar, and brown sugar until smooth. 
  3. Beat in the eggs one at a time, then stir in the vanilla. 
  4. Dissolve baking soda in hot water. 
  5. Add to batter along with salt. Stir in flour and chocolate chips
  6. Place batter into refrigerator for at LEAST 1 hour, preheat oven to 350
  7. Take out the dough and drop by rounded tablespoon fulls onto an UNGREASED cookie sheet
  8. Let bake for 15-17 minutes, checking often until the edges are browning and the middle is just barely set. Don’t overcook! They cook a little more once you take them out of the oven.

 

As my son would say DELICIOUS!

I guarantee your house will be the hot spot if you bake these cookies! It makes a pretty large batch so you can even freeze some of the dough in portions.

Sometimes, if I’m feeling really ambitious, I’ll go ahead and freeze the dough in balls on a cookie sheet. Than I place the balls in freezer bags so I can just pull out however many cookies we want at that time.

Made to order homemade cookies! Doesn’t get much better than that!

(if you are looking for more chocolate chip goodness, don’t miss out on these chocolate chip caramel cookie bars OR this chocolate chip cookie pie!)

Well okay, maybe it does:
