Lemon and almond cookies

Here is the recipe for my mini lemon and almond cookies.  These are light, little round biscuits - perfect as snacks or to offer to guests with some tea or coffee. 

  • 1/2 cup of white sugar
  • 1/4 cup of melted coconut oil
  • 1 + 1/2 cup of plain flour
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1/8 tsp salt
  • 1 egg
  • 4 tbs lemon juice (preferably fresh)
  • 1 egg yolk 
  • 1/3 cup sliced almonds
  • 1/4 cup icing sugar 
  • 1/2 tsp almond extract (optional)
  1. Cream together the sugar, coconut oil, egg and egg yolk and lemon juice. 
  2. Mix in flour, salt, baking powder and almonds into the wet mixture and form a ball.
  3. Cover the bowl with the ball of dough and place in the freezer for 20 minutes. 
  4. Use your hands to warm chunks of the dough and form it into cookie dough balls.
  5. Dip the cookie dough balls into sieved icing sugar and then place on an oven tray lined with baking / grease proof paper. 
  6. Bake for around 12-15 minutes. 
  7. Mix together some lemon juice and icing sugar and drizzle over the top once finished baking. For a thicker consistency, keep adding more icing sugar.
