Puffed Heart Lemon Cookies

Ingredients

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees F. Lightly coat 3-inch heart shape pans* or 3-1/2-inch muffin top pans with nonstick cooking spray; set aside.
  2. In small bowl stir together flour and baking powder; set aside.
  3. In a large mixing bowl beat butter with an electric mixer on low speed for 30 seconds. Add the sugar. Beat until combined, scraping sides of bowl occasionally. Beat in eggs, egg yolk, and vanilla. Beat in flour mixture. Stir in lemon peel.
  4. Using about 2 tablespoons batter, spread into the prepared heart shape pans or muffin top pans. Bake for 8 to 10 minutes or until edges are golden. Carefully transfer to a cooling rack; cool completely.
  5. Spread half the cookie tops with white Lemon Glaze and the other half with pink Lemon Glaze, or frost all one color. Let stand on wire rack until icing is dry. Transfer some of the icing to a pastry bag fitted with a writing tip or a small self-sealing plastic bag with a small corner snipped off to pipe initials, if desired. Makes about 20 cookies.

From the Test Kitchen

*Test Kitchen Tip:

These cookies were made in Heart Cookie Treat Pans from wilton.com. The pans have a slot for inserting lollipop sticks, but the batter is thick enough that it will not run out of these grooves. If you do not have this pan or a madeleine or muffin top pan, add 1-1/2 cups all-purpose flour and 1 teaspoon finely shredded lemon peel to the dough. Cover and refrigerate dough for 3 hours or until easy to handle. On a lightly floured surface, roll dough to 1/8- to 1/4-inch thickness. Cut out dough with 3-inch heart-shape cookie cutters. Bake as above.

Lemon Glaze

Ingredients

Directions

  1. In a large bowl stir together lemon juice and powdered sugar. Spoon half the mixture into another bowl. One drop at a time, add red food coloring; stir thoroughly between each addition to reach desired shade of pink.

Royal Icing

Ingredients

Directions

  1. In a large mixing bowl combine powdered sugar, meringue powder, and cream of tartar. Add warm water. Beat with an electric mixer on low speed until combined; beat on high speed for 7 to 10 minutes or until sugar mixture is very stiff. Add lemon peel. Cover bowl with a damp paper towel and plastic wrap; refrigerate up to 2 days. Makes about 5 cups.
