My childhood cookies

I believe that each family has a recipe of delicious plain cookies that moms and grandmas would bake. My recipe’s in my Mom’s handwriting but has been adapted from my Godmother Maria.  


So, I baked these cookies last night. They turned out great and reminded me of the tranquil moments of my childhood!


Do you want to bake them?

For 18 cookies, you’ll need—

250g flour

100g sugar

4g baking powder

lemon zest from 1 organic lemon

2 tbsp milk

1 egg

50g butter


Mix all the ingredients in the above-specified order. Knead well. You’ll feel like you can’t incorporate all the flour, but you will.

The cookie dough

The dough will be balanced, so you won’t need flour when you roll it out (its thickness should be 4-5mm).

Getting ready to cut out the cookies

Use the cutters of your liking and place the cookies in a baking pan lined with baking parchment.

Cookies in the baking pan

Bake in the preheated oven at 180C for 15 minutes.


So, how are they? J
