Lemon Crinkle and Lemon Coconut Cookies

Adapted from Lauren’s Latest via Tasty Kitchen

1/2 cup butter, room temp
2/3 cup granulated sugar
1/3 cup brown sugar
1/2 teaspoons vanilla extract
1 whole egg
1 1/2 teaspoons lemon zest
2-3 tablespoons fresh lemon juice (depending on how lemony you want them to be)
1 1/2 cup all-purpose flour
1/4 teaspoons salt
1/4 teaspoons baking powder
1/8 teaspoons baking soda
1/2 cup powdered sugar (for lemon crinkle cookies)
or 1/2 cup sweetened coconut (for lemon coconut cookies)

Preheat oven to 350F. Grease baking sheets with non stick cooking spray or line with parchment paper and set aside.

In a large bowl, cream the butter and sugar together until light and fluffy. Beat in the vanilla, egg, lemon zest and juice. In another bowl, combine the flour, salt, baking powder, and baking soda. Stir the flour mixture into the wet ingredients until just combined.

For lemon crinkles, pour the powdered sugar onto a large plate or shallow bowl. Roll a heaping teaspoon of dough into a ball and roll in powdered sugar. Place on baking sheet and repeat with remaining dough. For the coconut cookies, do the same as above except use coconut instead of powdered sugar.

Bake the cookies for 9-11 minutes or until bottom of cookies begin to barely brown and cookies have a matte finish (they shouldn’t look like like they’re melting). Remove from oven and cool cookies about 2 minutes before transferring to cooling rack.

*If using a non stick darker baking tray, reduce baking time by about 2 minutes.

I got a confession to make. I am food addict, over-indulgent! I crave for anything especially sweets, chocolates, cakes, ice cream, strawberries, halo-halo, leche flan, banana Q, breads, pasta, Nasi Goreng....tell me what you got in your fridge ;-D. Thank heavens for I got my mum's genes, I can gain and lose pounds that easy and quick. I am here to share with you my food recipe collection (almost forgotten in a corner of my room) and search for new, exciting recipes, meet good people, and discover more about the world of baking. I am no professional baker or chef (just a wanna-be for now) but we'll get there in time. In sha Allah. Afterall, DREAMS just got to start somewhere, and it starts right here, right now! Meantime enjoy this food journey with me among other stuff....amigos to the kitchen! [Thank you for visiting my blog,you're always welcome to come by! Feel free to dig deep into the posts, much treasures there. And leave your comments, I'd appreciate your words....] [P.S. Borrowed articles/photos can be deleted anytime, please advise.Thank you.]
