Lemon Thins

This recipe is from the Senior Magazine we receive each month in Boston. It was provided my Melissa Carlson, MS, RD
I have changed the way the directions were written and even the way she wrote the ingredients. So I believe I have not violated any copyright laws.


Lemon Thins

Preheat oven to 350F.
Coat two baking sheets with cooking spray or use parchment paper

Ingredients:
1 cups whole-wheat pastry flour or all-purpose flour
1/3 cup cornstarch
1 tsp. baking powder
tsp. salt
3/4 cup of sugar, divided
2 tbs. butter, softened
2 tbs. canola oil
1 large egg white
1 tsp. freshly grated lemon zest
1 tsp. vanilla extract
3 tbs. lemon juice

Directions
1. Whisk flour, cornstarch, baking powder and salt in a mixing bowl. Beat in cup of sugar, butter and oil in another mixing bowl with an electric mixer on medium speed until fluffy. Add egg white, lemon zest and vanilla; beat until smooth. Beat in lemon juice. Add the dry ingredients to the wet ingredients and fold in gently with a rubber spatula just until combined.

2. Drop the dough by a teaspoonful, two inches apart and place onto the prepared baking sheets. Place the remaining cup sugar in a saucer. Coat the bottom of a wide-bottomed glass with cooking spray. Dip the glass into the sugar. Flatten the cookie dough with the glass into 2 inch circles, dipping the glass into the sugar each time.

3. Bake the cookies until they are just starting to brown around the edges. Approximately eight to ten minutes. Transfer to a flat surface (not a rack) to crisp.

Makes 2 dozen cookies

Calories 60 per cookie

Thanks for the recipe, Addie. Sounds good - I love lemon cookies.

From what I understand, it's ok to copy recipes and share them online, as long as credit is given to the author or source - which you did. In that case, I don't think it's necessary to change up the wording. :-)

Actually, that's not true. You might want to check the site guidelines on that.

My apologies. I was wrong - I read through the TOS and guidelines again.

No issue. You can list the ingredients, then mess with the method and put it in your own words, like Addie did.

Now, I am waiting for someone to bake these for me!

Thanks Dawg. I did change a lot of the wording and added some of my own words. Such as "Approximately eight to ten minutes. She had a comma after the previous sentence and then wrote 8 - 10 minutes... She also used the figures in the recipe directions. I learned in Business Class that 1-10 are always spelled out and all other numbers above that are written as figures unless it is the first word of a sentence. Since there were no numbers above ten, I spelled out all the figures when in a sentence. She also had the 'preheat oven.... listed as #1. I put that at the very beginning of the recipe. I do that with all my recipes. It should be the first thing you do. Like the saying goes, 'your oven should wait for you, not you wait for your oven.'

And Dawg, I will bake them for you. I love lemon anything.

Maybe so. But once they leave here with the cookies in tow, who is to say they will make it all the way to your home. And I wouldn't mind at all. I have all the ingredients and I would rather bake than cook.
