I wanted to use this recipe as a base for making Easter cookies with my daughter. This recipe rolls out easily and can be made into fun shapes with cookie cutters. These are nice and bright and very portable to take with you for family visits.

Lemon Butter Cookies

Cream together:

  • 1 cup softened butter
  • 1 cup sugar

Mix in:

  • zest of 1 lemon (or 2 if you want more lemon coming though)
  • 1/4 cup plain unsweetened yogurt (equal to 1 egg or use an egg replacer equivalent to 1 egg)
  • 2 tbsp lemon juice

When mixed, add in:

  • 2 and 1/2 cup flour
  • 1/2 tsp baking powder
  • 1/4 tsp salt

Mix until a soft dough forms. Wrap in plastic wrap and refrigerate for an hour. Roll out about 1/4 inch thick and cut into fun Easter Shapes. We added coloured sprinkles before baking.

Bake 350 degrees F for 10-12 minutes.
