Adventures in Lemon Cheesecake Cookies!

OK, I lastly took the lemon cheesecake cookie recipe I was planning to bake for Connor’s instructors out for a spin, as well as you’re most likely gonna laugh since I do things like “baking test runs,” however I do them because…I’m me! I just needed/wanted to do a test batch before doing the actual batch to provide to the teachers. (I know. as well as LOL!)

I’m really delighted I did it since I figured out a few things in the process. One, I bought the wrong flour as well as didn’t recognize it up until I started measuring out the ingredients.


DOH! I was supposed to buy self-rising cake flour, however I accidentally bought routine cake flour instead. however there’s a repair for that. (Hang tight. more on this in a minute.)

Two, I left the cookies in the oven a bit as well long…so I don’t believe they were cheesecake-y enough. They were somewhat overbaked.

And three, tasty as they still were, they weren’t lemony enough. With the next batch, I’m going to kick up the amount of grated lemon peel a notch… I’m most likely going to double it since I like my lemon cookies to be extremely lemony.

All in all, they turned out OK! Not a poor very first pass. I got down with a few cookies today, as well as so did Connor. She was a extremely practical baking assistant as well as did a excellent task of mixing the dough as well as rolling out the cookies into balls.

She’s so funny. Her hands would get sticky from the dough as well as she’d be like, “Mama, I requirement to laundry my hands!” as well as I’d be like, “No, babylove. the very best part about baking is getting dirty. Your hands should be sticky as well as messy.” I truly just desired her to get in there as well as play. I put a chair right next to me on the counter so we might talk to every other, as well as I likewise provided her a plastic bowl as well as a whisk so she might do some pretend baking together with me.

I believe one reason I like having her bake with me is since when I was growing up my mom was soooo not a baker, however on unusual occasions, she’d make banana bread.

I always wished to get in there as well as help, however I was only enabled to mash the bananas with a fork. The rest of the time, I’d stand there drooling as well as watching as well as wanting I might do more.

My one other task always occurred at the end. My mom would eliminate the whisks from the electric beater, hand them to me, as well as then I’d lick every last decrease of the batter from them.

I understand that people don’t truly do that anymore since — HELLO, RAW EGGS — however that was my preferred part! as well as for the record, I never got ill (side note: El Hub states I have a goat stomach since I can quite much eat anything, knock on wood). Anyway, since I never got to bake much as a kid, I want Connor’s youth baking experiences with me to be interactive as well as ideally fun.

The second (and ideally final) batch will go down before Friday, which is the official cookie day, as well as when I do it, I’m going to dial back on the salt because, like I stated earlier, I had to improvise since I didn’t buy self-rising cake flour. You can make self-rising cake flour at home, however, as well as the method you do it is, for each cup of flour, you add one as well as a half teaspoons of baking powder as well as half a teaspoon of salt (thank you, Internet). however in this specific cookie recipe, I might truly taste the salt, so next time I’m gonna tone it down.


It’s a great recipe, though, as well as it’s easy. You should try it if you’re in the mood for a light, soft cookie.
