Melting Moments Lemon and Chocolate Cookies pinterest

Melting moments cookies flavored with lemon or chocolate, so delicious!

This cookie is a bit similar to shortbread in texture, less the salty hind flavor, it is crumbly and actually melts in your mouth, a very comforting cookie that calls immediately for a good cup of tea or a glass of milk.

Here I piped the cookie dough with a large star tip and chilled my cookies on their baking trays overnight. If you choose this method and for best results, I suggest that you pipe small and thick cookies, about 1.7 inches (4.5 cm) diameter. If the cookies are large and need a longer baking time, the edges will melt and you will end up with almost flat cookies with a few weird edges.

You can also make classic Melting Moments cookies: form balls of dough and lay them on a baking sheet, flatten them a bit, chill your dough for about an hour, and then bake for about 10-12 minutes or until they’re slightly golden around the edges.

Makes two dozen cookies.

  • 24 cookies
  • Delicate
  • 1 h 30

Recipe :

Ingredients:

Lemon Cookies:

1 cup (226 g.) unsalted butter, soft

3/4 cup (80 g.) powdered or icing sugar

1 tsp vanilla

1 and 3/4 cups (228 g.) all-purpose flour

4 tbsp. (50 g.) corn starch

1/4 tsp salt

Zest of 1 lemon

Chocolate Cookies:

Remove 1/4 cup flour (33 g.)

Replace by 1/4 cup (21 g.) cocoa powder

Glaze (optional):

1/2 cup (120 g.) powdered or icing sugar

A few lemon drops

1 cup of chocolate chunks, melted

Make the dough:

Pre-heat your oven at 350°F (180°C), line two baking sheets with parchment paper, add a little bit of dough on all corners of baking sheet and press parchment paper to maintain it

In the bowl of your stand mixer with the paddle attachment, cream together the soft butter and icing sugar on medium to high speed until creamy and smooth

Add the vanilla and lemon zest, mix

Add the corn starch, salt and flour, mix on low speed until just incorporated

Finish mixing with a spatula, checking that there’s no flour left at the bottom of bowl

Fit a piping bag with a large star tip and fill bag with dough, checking that there’s no air bubble left

Press bag, pipe and make one swirl

Once all the cookies are piped, chill them several hours or preferably overnight

Bake cookies:

Bake for 10 to 13 minutes (mine took 13 minutes), or until the edges are set and slightly golden

Let cool for 5 minutes on the baking sheet before transferring to a wire rack to finish cooling

Glaze cookies:

Once completely cooled, mix the powdered sugar and lemon drops until you reach the right consistency, make a glaze of pouring consistency but still rather thick, let glaze dry completely before storing cookies into an airtight container

To bake perfect cookies:

Chill your cookie dough for as long as you can, even overnight when possible, not only will the different aromas blend together, but your cookies will remain thicker with the coldest cookie dough

If you like your cookies a bit thick, I find that it helps to roll balls of dough slightly higher than larger, or in this case to pipe them a little thick.

Use room temperature ingredients like butter, eggs, etc. To do so, remove ingredients from fridge at least 1/2 an hour before use. When in a hurry, I dip my eggs in a bowl of lukewarm water, and of course, you can always pop butter a few seconds in your microwave

Also, cookies will bake faster on a dark baking sheet than on light one. So, try to bake all your cookies on same color baking sheets to better estimate your baking time.

The wet ingredients can mix for a long time and at high speed, but as soon as you add dry ingredients to the batter, you must mix slowly and the shortest possible time, even finish mixing with a spatula.

Enjoy!

I wouldn't have usually thought to put chocolate and lemon together, as it's usually an either or thing for me, but I am loving the Sound of these and I am going to try them at the weekend.

This is such a unique cookie! It appears to be almost a marriage between a spritz and a shortbread cookie. Sounds delicious!
