Lemon Drop Cookies
- 1 large egg yolk
- ¾ cup granulated white sugar
- 1 tablespoon honey
- 1 tablespoon freshly-squeezed lemon juice
- 1 tablespoon fresh lemon zest, finely grated
- 1-¼ cups all-purpose flour
- ½ teaspoon baking soda
- Pinch of salt
- Preheat oven to 320°F. Brush cookies sheets with additional melted butter or line with baking paper. Set aside.
- Whisk together egg yolk, sugar, honey, lemon juice and zest. Gradually pour over flour, baking powder and salt in a mixing bowl. Beat over low speed until just moistened.
- Scoop mixture, about 1-½ teaspoons each, onto prepared baking sheet, leaving a 2-inch gap between each mound of batter to allow room for expansion.
- Bake for 12 to 15 minutes or until edges are golden brown and center are set. Cool cookies on baking sheet for 3 to 5 minutes, then turn out on wire racks to cool completely.
- If desired, whisk together confectioners’ sugar with a few drop of fresh lemon juice and drizzle over cookies. Alternatively, sift confectioners’ sugar over cookies while still warm on wire racks.
- Store leftovers in airtight containers to prolong freshness of cookies.
