Ingredient Checklist


Instructions Checklist
  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Lightly grease two baking sheets.

  • In a large bowl beat the butter and sugar with an electric mixer until mixture is creamy and light.

  • Add the egg, a little at a time, beating well between each addition. Add the lemon zest.

  • Add the sifted flour and spices and, using a wooden spoon, stir well until the mixture forms a stiff dough.

  • Knead dough lightly in the bowl and, using your hands, shape the dough into 25 small balls.

  • Place the balls on the greased baking sheets, leaving room between each to spread during baking.

  • Flatten each cookie slightly with the prongs of a fork dipped in flour. Press the fork in two directions to make a crisscross pattern.

  • Bake for 10 minutes until golden. Remove from oven and let cool on a heatproof surface for five minutes. Then, with a spatula, transfer cookies to a cooling rack until cold.
