Friends, it is time for a special chocolate chip cookie! One with brown butter and sea salt, because I am into that. Maybe I am lame, but I don’t care, I am in love with chocolate chip cookies. In case you didn’t know, I looked high and low before finally settling on this recipe for the traditional chocolate chip cookie. Believe me, I tried more than 20 recipes, I asked everybody and I made many, many batches. My husband got desperate after eating all those cookies and asked me to stop. But I couldn’t, I had to find the perfect recipe. Which I finally found, thank God.

Simple Sour Cream Cookies for Easter

einfache Schmandplätzchen zu Ostern

I promised I would introduce more cookie recipes during my second year of blogging. For that reason I decided to make some simple sour cream cookies for Easter. I actually got this recipe when I spent one year in Canada. It is a very old-fashioned recipe and not too sweet. These cookies are very soft, cute and pretty. Obviously you don’t have to make Easter bunnies and the like, I remember just using a glass in order to cut out the cookies in Canada.

Summer Lemon Cookies

Summer Lemon Cookies

I think I have mentioned that Germans aren’t that much into cookies. Especially not in summer. But when I brought these Summer Lemon Cookies to work the other day, they were gone within minutes. Even I was a little surprised. Maybe it was because they are full of lemon flavor and you can definitely taste the cream cheese. Since they are rolled in sugar before baking, they have a nice crunchy touch, but are soft in the center. I don’t know. But what I do know is that these cookies are really easy to prepare and do NOT need to sit in the fridge to develop their flavor. You can whip them up in about 20 minutes from start to finish.

Summer Lemon Cookies

Print Recipe
Serves: 25 cookies, depending on size Cooking Time: 10min preparation +10min baking

Ingredients

  • 300 grams all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon of baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon of cornstarch
  • A pinch salt
  • 100 grams of regular sugar, + 50 grams for rolling
  • 120 grams of unsalted butter, softened
  • 113 grams of cream cheese, softened
  • 1 egg, size L, room temperature
  • 45 milliliters of fresh lemon juice (I usually need no more than one lemon)
  • 2 teaspoons lemon zest (about half a lemon)
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract, see here how to make your own

Instructions

1

Preheat oven to 180 degrees Celsius and line two baking sheets with parchment paper.

2

Whisk the flour, baking soda, cornstarch and salt in a medium-size bowl. Set aside.

3

Pour about 50 grams of regular sugar in a small container. Set aside.

4

Cream the butter and cream cheese in a large bowl with a mixer for about two minutes, then add 100 grams of sugar and mix one more minute. Add the egg, lemon juice, lemon zest and vanilla extract. Add the dry ingredients to the wet ingredients and either mix on low or using a wooden spoon until combined.

5

Roll balls of dough in the size of a walnut and roll in prepared sugar afterwards. Place on baking sheet lined with parchment paper. Cookies will flatten out slightly. Gently press down each cookie with the bottom part of a glass. Bake the cookies for 10 to 11 minutes, or until very lightly browned on the edges. Let cool on baking sheets for a few minutes before transferring to a cooling rack.

Notes

Cookies can be kept in an air-tight container for a few days.

I am taking this cookie also to the link party Fiesta Friday.

So which cookie is your favorite in summer?
