Yes, more cookies. It is that time of year, and today we had a few families from our playgroup over. SO we baked more cookies and made yummy key lime tartlets. These cookies are nice-not too much sugar yet they are soft and creamy. My photo is not the best since I forgot to take a picture until after everyone left tonight so the lighting is...well...but they are yummy!
1 c. butter
3 oz. organic cream cheese
1/2 cup cane sugar
1 Tbsp grated lemon peel (be sure to use an organic lemon when using peel!)
2 c flour (I used a thick ground organic whole wheat white)
Beat the cream cheese and butter together in a bowl or kitchen aid. Stir in the sugar and then the lemon peel. Slowly add the flour. Cover and put in the fridge for an hour or two to firm up.
Roll dough into 1" balls (about 1 Tbsp). Dip them into a little bit of cane sugar. Then place on cookie sheet. Stamp the cookies down with a potato masher/meat mallet/fork to pattern.
Bake 7-9 minutes until the cookies are set but before they get brown. Cool on a rack. Makes about 4 dozen.
Ingredient Tip: Use organic butter which is from pasture/grass fed cows. This butter is much more nutrient rich and has many things our bodies need!
