Lemon Burst Snickerdoodle Cookies
Lemon Burst Snickerdoodle Cookies are an amazing variation of a basic snickerdoodle cookie. They are a combination of sugar, cinnamon with a tart bite of lemon. These cookies are a perfect summertime treat.
I saw these lemon wafers on the King Arthur website one day when I was ordering some other items. They have a mild, refreshing lemon taste that is not too strong and does not leave an artificial aftertaste.
My mind was spinning with ideas of ways to use them.
Cookies won over the decision. I started with a basic dough for snickerdoodles. Anything rolled in cinnamon and sugar is always delicious.
My next decision was the size I wanted to make them, so I tried a regular size and a smaller version.
I used my basic snickerdoodle cookie dough.
To make the regular size cookies, I used my small scoop to form the cookie balls.
Bake the cookies and allow to cool a few minutes on the pan.
Transfer cookies to a wire cooling rack and gently press a lemon wafer down into the center of each cookie. Cool cookies on rack.
To create a smaller cookie, I used my small scoop to make a cookie ball, then cut it in half. Place cut side down on the baking sheet. Bake. Remove from oven.
Allow cookies to set a few minutes, then gently press a lemon wafer into the center of each cookie. Cool on baking sheet a few more minutes, then transfer to a cooling rack.
Cool cookies on rack.
After I made both sizes of the cookies, I prefer the smaller ones. They would be perfect to serve on a dessert table with other desserts. I can see serving them at a tea party also. We have 15 grandchildren, who all love cookies. The smaller size ones would be perfect for children.

(I recently tried to order the lemon wafers again but they are no longer available on King Arthur website. ) I will look for them other places.
