Matt I am your host Matt Taylor, today I am going to show you how to make Lemon Butter
cookies, mmm, yummy. I had a request to make lemon butter cookies,
so here we go that is what we are going to do. It is a very easy recipe, simple ingredients,
if I can do it, you can do it, let’s get started. First let’s go ahead and preheat our oven
to 350 degrees F. or 176 Celsius. Next I have my butter which has been softened
at room temperature, down below in the description I will have the amounts for all the ingredients. And now what I am going to do is I am going
to add my powdered sugar. And then let’s cream this together. And then half way through let’s go ahead and
scrape the sides once. All right so we want to beat it so it is nice
and smooth, it will probably be a couple of minutes for that, next let’s go ahead and
add our lemon juice, our lemon zest, this is fine lemon zest I used a lemon zester for
this, and now let’s mix that in there. And now we are going to add in our flour and
salt so what I normally do, is I just take about a third of it first, and then add my
salt on top of it, for the first mix. Give it a scrape, and so on until all the
flour is incorporated. So I will come back when that is done, and
then we go ahead and clean off the beaters, once the dough is ready. All right now what we do is we take a Tablespoon,
or a Teaspoon, depending on what size you want to make these, and we want to just come
and get some. And then we want to roll these into about
an inch ball, like that, it’s a little bit bigger then an inch, just try and make them
all roughly the same size. And then I am using a silicone mat, here on
my cookie sheet, those of you who watch the show know that I love silicone mats, I will
put a link down below where you can pick them up, if you want, or just use parchment paper. All right once you have your cookie sheet
filled up just come in here with your fingers, push it down a little bit so it flattens it
out, like so. And then we are going to bake these in the
oven again at 350 degrees F, 176 C, and we are going to bake them for 12 to 14 minutes,
and what I do is I have my rack set at the lower third and the upper third rack, and
then what I am going to do is at the six minute mark, I am going to take this from the top
or the upper third rack, and I am going to take it and turn it 180 degrees, and then
put it on the bottom third rack, if that makes sense. So I am pretty much just rotating these around
in the oven to make sure the cookies get baked evenly. All right when they come out of the oven they
will look like this, they will have a slight brown edge to them, and underneath will be
nice golden brown, and we are going to let these set here on the hot pan for a couple
of minutes, and then we will transfer them over to that wire cookie rack. While our cookies are cooling on the cookie
rack let’s go ahead and make our glaze. And to do that we are going to take our powdered
sugar, our lemon juice, and our butter, we are just going to go ahead and mix this together,
I am just using a fork, you can use a whisk, I like using the fork, and then you got a
nice, glaze or frosting, that we are going to put on these cookies, just a thin little
coating on top. And then just using a thin little spatula
I am just going to come in here an get a little bit amount and top it off and you can do however
much you want, and then just take a little bit of lemon zest for garnish. And you can actually leave the glaze off too,
these taste really good without the glaze, they are pretty much like a shortbread cookie,
and when they are all done they will look something like these, this batch made about
28 to 30 cookies, again depending on the size that you make them you could get more or less. All right our lemon butter cookies are done,
they turned out fantastic. They are really easy to make, if I can make
them you can make them, I am Matt Taylor this has been another episode of In the Kitchen
