HOW TO MAKE LEMON CURD COOKIES
Step 1: Ready the oven and preheat to 350 degrees.
Step 2: Apply non-stick liner or parchment paper into a half-sheet-pan baking sheet.
Step 3: In a large bowl, add sugar and butter. Use a hand mixer to mix it properly. Beat until well-blended.
Step 4: In the same bowl with the butter mixture, add flour, and beat until incorporated well. Bind the dough in the same bowl.
Step 5: Create 1-inch balls out of the dough. Use a tablespoon to form it.
Step 6: Put each ball into the lined sheets. Leave a 1-inch space on each ball.
Step 7: Apply flour to your finger then press the middle part of the ball to create a small indentation.
Step 8: Place the sheet in the oven and bake for 18 to 20 minutes or until it becomes lightly golden.
Step 9: Remove from the oven and add the curd to the small indentation in the middle of each ball.
Step 10: Out it back to the oven and bake for another 2 minutes until the curd is cooked.
Step 11: For the remaining cookies, brush the edges with confectioners’ sugar and bake in the oven.
Step 12: Serve hot and enjoy!
