Lemon Sugar Wafers

Discovered this recipe quite a few years ago during the Christmas Season. Although I have never been a huge cookie baker, these immediately became part of my repertoire for an all year round treat.  The kids, grandkids and our Brazilian grandchildren enjoy them immensely.  They really are a lemon flavoured sugar cookie without the fuss of rolling out the dough.  They really are fabulous!

Prep Time
20 min
  1. • 2 cups white sugar
  2. • 1 cup butter, softened
  3. • 2 eggs
  4. • 1 tablespoon grated lemon zest - generous is okay
  5. • 1/4 cup lemon juice
  6. • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  7. • 3 1/2 cups flour
  8. • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  9. • 1 teaspoon salt
  10. • 1 teaspoon cream of tartar
  11. • addiitional granualated sugar
  1. Cream sugar, butter, eggs, lemon zest, juice and vanilla in large mixing bowl until smooth. I use a stand mixer.
  2. Stir in flour, baking soda, salt and cream of tartar until well blended.
  3. Refrigerate 1 hour.
  4. Shape dough into 1 inch balls.
  5. Roll in additional granulated sugar coating generously.
  6. Place 2 inches apart on prepared cookie sheet.
  7. Bake for 15 to 20 minutes in a 325 degree oven or until light golden brown.
  8. Cookies will be soft in the centre.
  9. Cool on sheet for 5 minutes, then transfer to rack to cool completely.
  1. I use a Pampered Chef baking stone so the baking time for me is closer to 18 minutes in a Miele oven. A baking stone ensures completely even heating so that the bottoms don't get too brown. As always, monitor the progress of the baking and adjust to the uniqueness of your oven.
