Cookie Recipe #161 - Lemon Chocolate Chip Buttons
Chocolate chip cookies with a lemon twist; soft and irresistable.
Ingredients: 2 cups all-purpose flour, 1/2 teaspoon baking soda, 1 teaspoon ground coriander, 3/4 cup butter, softened, 1 cup white sugar, 2 large eggs, 1 1/2 teaspoon pure lemon extract, 1 1/2 cups (9 ounces)miniature chocolate chips.
Instructions: Preheat oven to 300 degrees. In a medium bowl, combine flour, soda and coriander; set aside.
In a large bowl, cream butter and sugar at medium speed to form a grainy paste. Add eggs and lemon extract; beat well. Add the flour mixture and the chocolate chips, blending just until combined. Do not overmix.
Drop dough by teaspoonfuls onto ungreased baking sheets, 1 1/2 inches apart. Bake for 12-14 minutes or until cookies are set; do not brown. Remove from oven to wire racks to cool completely.
Makes 4 dozen buttons.
