Project: Chocolate Cookies with Lemon Glaze

EN

Ever since I got tagged with an answer: share you favourite cookie recipe for the holiday, I really didn’t have one.

Surely I love to bake and I love eating cookies but I don’t bake them a lot because my family doesn’t really eat them or just eat 1 tiny bits, forcing me to eat the entire batch all by myself. So yeah, that’s why I don’t bake them much.

But since we are all in a holiday/food spirit, I want to share you guys a nice cookie recipe from scratch: chocolate cookies with lemon glaze!
NL

Sinds ik getagd ben met onder andere de vraag: wat mijn favoriete koekjes recept is, had ik die niet.

Natuurlijk hou ik van bakken en misschien nog meer van het opsmullen van de koekjes, maar helaas deelt mijn familie niet echt dezelfde passie. Of ze nemen maar een luttele hap van 1 koek en laten de rest aan mij over. Dus daarom bak ik niet vaak koekjes.

Maar sinds we toch in een feestelijke sfeer bevinden, heb ik hier simpele koekjes receptje voor jullie in petto: chocolade koekjes met citroen glazuur!  

Da Recipe: 175gr plain flour, 25gr cacao powder, 3 tbsp. sugar, 115 butter (room temp.), 1 egg yolk, 85 icing sugar + few drops of lemon juice

 Molds are from Ikea c:

 And et voilà! Made with love.

Da Steps:

  1. Pre-heat oven to 200°C + line a baking tray with parchment paper! 
  2. Beat with a handmixer the butter and sugar until creamy. Then add in the egg yolk and beat until its smooth.
  3. Sieve the flour + cacao powder and combine with the butter mixture until it creates a really soft dough. 
  4. On a lightly floured surface, roll the dough out with a roller pin to create a nice thin layer. When this is done cut nice figures with cute molds. 
  5. The cookies goes on the lined baking tray and bake the cookies to 15 minutes.  
  6. Once they are baked, let the cookies cool down on a rack. Meanwhile! Make the lemon glaze by combining the 85gr icing sugar + few drops of lemon juice! 
  7. Decorate the cookies with your homemade glaze as I piped mine. Let them set aside to harden. 
Good luck!

  3. Ah, I'm exactly the same when it comes to cookies! No one in my family ends up eating them, so usually I don't even bother. These ones sound great though, I've never tried cookies with a lemon glaze before!

  5. Those look so good. I want to buy more cookie cutters to make cute gifts for my friends, but they're just so expensive. I might go to Daiso soon though to see if they have anything.
