What can I make with lots of lemons?

It is quite common for lemons to be one of the main ingredients in several sweet and savory dishes. If you love cooking and love to experiment on tastes, then you should always have a couple of lemons on hand since even just a few squeezes of these could bring a rich flavor to your dishes. What’s more is that they are also a good source of vitamin C which is essential for the protection of your health. Lemons also support heart health, increases your iron absorption, boost your immune system, and promote healthy skin. 

Generally, lemons are perfect for several dinner meals as well as baked goods, salad dressings, sauces, desserts, and drinks. You can create delicious donuts, muffins, and cakes with a few drops of lemon syrup or a drizzle of lemon zest. You can also whip up some sweet, creamy pastry such as a lemon tart. And for drinks, lemon juice is going to be one of your best options for a healthy beverage since lemon juice will give you a boost of vitamin C.  It can also help you cleans your body and detox your liver.  Furthermore, you can have lemon juice prepared as oil or dressing for your green salads.

You can store your classic, freshly squeezed lemon juice in the refrigerator up to 2 weeks before it loses its freshness. 

How do you make lemon cookies from scratch?

Lemons really go well with baked goods and pastries especially if you need that extra distinct flavor in your food. With that, one of the easiest and quickest lemon baked goodies you can make is lemon cookies. 

You just need a few basic ingredients such as:

1 whole egg

1 teaspoon lemon zest

1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice

½ cups butter softened

1 cup granulated sugar

½ teaspoons vanilla extract

¼ teaspoons salt

¼ teaspoons baking powder

⅛ teaspoons baking soda

1-½ cup all-purpose flour

½ cups powdered sugar

Instructions

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees and lightly grease your baking sheets with a nonstick cooking spray or cover with parchment paper. In a large bowl, add your cream butter and sugar and whip until light and fluffy. Mix in your vanilla, egg, lemon zest, and lemon juice. 

Stir in flour, salt, baking soda, and baking powder slowly. Pour your powdered sugar onto a large plate. Roll a teaspoon of dough into a ball, and roll it in the powdered sugar. Place each dough on the baking sheet. 

Bake for about 9 to 11 minutes or until the bottom of your cookies begin to brown. Remove from oven and cool for about 3 minutes.
