Does anyone have a good roll-out Lemon Sugar Cookie recipe? - Page 2

Thanks, Bonniebakes! It sounds like the darkening might only be with lime zest and not lemon zest. Great idea to add lemon juice to the RI! thumbs_up.gif Are you using Antonia74's RI recipe? If so, how much lemon juice do you recommend to avoid overdoing it or breaking down the icing? Thanks for your help! I am just going through so many supplies in the testing phase, so your help is much appreciated! icon_smile.gif

Tracy - I use a modified version of Antonia's RI - I replace about 1/3 of the water with corn syrup when I want it to be a little more shiny, otherwise I follow Helen's recipe, and just add a few teaspoons of corn syrup to it.

I'm not sure how much lemon juice I've added... probably 1-2 Tablespoon. I add it a little at a time toward the end of the 10 minute mixing period, and judge by look and smell. Sorry, I know that's not much help!

TracyLH, I'm not a "cookie maker" like so many others here, but I do make cookies on a regular basis. They just don't get decorated to the "unth" degree like the gorgeous ones that pop up on CC.

I always us No Fail Sugar Cookie Recipe and add 1 teaspoon of lemon extract and a 1/2 teaspoon of orange extract which compliments the lemon but does not overwhelm. This combo is often used in pound cake mixtures as well. I like the idea of lemon rind; however, I would make sure I'd use an ultra fine rasp to grate it as it can add a bitterness to the dough if it is too large.

They were in charge of the bread set out on the table, the flour for the grain offerings, the unleavened wafers, the baking and the mixing, and all measurements of quantity and size.

You all have my gleek glands going for the lemon thanks for the recipes, I tried the PB roll out and the chocolate chip one from soneone on here and they are yummy also, but the chocolate chip roll out doesn't make many. I have to try these lemon ones.

Win - Thanks so much! That sounds very good! thumbs_up.gif

Debster - I have heard great things about the PB cookies too. I think that is GeminiRJ's recipe as well as the chocolate chip one, unless I am mistaken. (Oh, if you want to see something that is too cute, take a look at her lobster cookies she just posted today in the gallery! Some of the funniest cookies I have ever seen! I am still laughing! icon_lol.gif )

Sorry I haven't been back to answer those questions before now, Tracy! I used the first cream cheese cookie link. The "best ever". I didn't put the almond extract in, instead I used half a little bottle of the tiny Lorann's lemon oil.

I am definitely a cookie novice, but I found it incorporated just fine. My husband and I ate the leftover cookies for a week. I also did not find them fragile at all. I used the recipe for cookie bouquets for my niece's birthday and they came out great. I wouldn't be any more wary about shipping them than I would NFSC. HTH.

Tracy, I just wanted to tell you that I had some frozen cookies that I didn't use the lemon emulsion in, and I smelled it and it was just so blah. Then I smelled a lemon one and I was like POW! I don't think I will ever NOT use it in a cookie, ever, unless specially requested by a customer. I just wanted to share that with you, lol. And you don't need a special recipe, just a tsp or so in your normal sugar cookie recipe. I'm off to buy multiple bottles right now.

I have a great and easy recipe for lemon baked alaskas. You cut the bottom tip off of lemons so that they'll sit level, then cut about the top 1/3 off and hollow out the shells. Next, fill them with lemon sorbet, stand each one up in a muffin tin and freeze them. Make a meringue, pipe a big swirl on top of each lemon, broil them for about 30 seconds, then pop back in the freezer. When you want to eat them (and impress the heck out of everyone! thumbs_up.gif ) just thaw them for 20 minutes before serving.

They're only 116 calories apiece and are fat free.

Now, back to the topic -- where do you buy lemon emulsion?
