Happy Holidays! I hope this post finds you well. We are only a few sleep nights away from Christmas, and I wanted to share my amazing butter cookies recipe. I find myself indulging in these every Christmas season.
I only cook these for Christmas as I have no self-control when it comes to them. One of the key ingredients is pure lemon extract. It breaks off the sweetness, so pairing them with a cold glass of milk or Peppermint flavored bourbon cream is oh-so-delicious.
One key thing I have learned over the years with baking these cookies is to make them thin and to bake them on parchment paper to avoid major puffing and spreading. I think this is my best batch yet. I did a simple egg wash topping for a crispy finish.
I hope you have time to try them in the near future. They are so delicious! As always, thank you for following me on my journey. Seasons Greetings! Omniley
