A Bitter Sweet Message From YARP

New from the Yummish Advanced Research Projects (YARP) test kitchen:
Mmmmm... Lemony...
  • 1/2 cup unsalted butter
  • 1/2 cup salted butter
  • 1 cup powdered sugar, split
  • the zest of one large lemon (1-2 tsp)
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 2 cups flour
  • 2 Tbsp lemon juice

Cream together salted and unsalted butters
Add ½ cup powdered sugar and cream together
Add lemon zest and vanilla, mixing well between each
Stir in flour

Shape dough into balls, approximately 2”
Place on non-stick cookie sheet
Flatten balls to 1/4” thick rounds, using a glass with a smooth, flat bottom
Chill for 1 hour

Squeeze lemon and stir juice into remaining powdered sugar, a small amount at a time until a thick paste forms. (You may not need all of the lemon juice.) 

Bake dough at 350 degrees for 20 minutes or until golden at the edges.
Using a spoon, drizzle tops with lemon/sugar icing.
Yield: about 18

Today's exercise: Get your bake on!
