Hello everyone!  This is RJ from Virtuous Girlhood, Toni was so nice to let me guest post today and I wanted to share with you a very easy recipe.
Lemon cookies remind me of my grandma. She always had lemon cookies at her house and being the health freak that I am, I attempted to re-create these cookies without the dyes and preservatives. And here is the result of an hour spent in the kitchen.

Lemon Cookies

Author RJ Gould


  • Two sticks of softened butter
  • 1 cup of sugar
  • 1 egg and 1 egg yolk
  • 1 tsp. of vanilla
  • 1/4 cup lemon juice In this case less ISN’T more
  • 1 tsp. of baking soda
  • 1 tsp. of salt
  • 3 cups of flour
  • Powdered sugar
  • Almonds chopped and toasted


  1. Pre-heat your oven to 350 F. Then in a large bowl blend your sugar and butter together until light and combined.
  2. Then add the rest of your ingredients except for the flour and mix well. When everything is light and fluffy slowly add your flour mixing until the dough is no longer crumbly.
  3. Form your dough into little balls and roll in the powdered sugar. Place on a cookie sheet and press down with a fork lightly. You can then sprinkle chopped almonds on top if desired. Bake the cookies for ten minutes or until a light golden color.
