Italian Lemon Cake

This Italian lemon pound cake is a recipe that I'd had my eye on for a long time. I finally made it back in April! I skipped adding frosting but if you visit the original recipe it'll tell you how to make it. The glaze needed a lot more lemon juice than the recipe called for. I used 5 tablespoons of lemon juice and it was still very thick. The cake itself isn’t very lemony so you really do need either the glaze or the frosting to bring the lemon flavour to this recipe. I'm not complaining though, it was still really delicious!

Best Big, Fat, Chewy Chocolate Chip Cookies

They're supposed to be big according to the original recipe but I like smaller cookies so I used a small cookie scoop. Don't be tempted to over-cook them. When you take them out they should look slightly under-cooked, they'll finish cooking to chewy perfection on the baking sheet. The original recipe doesn't say this, but I chilled my dough for an hour. Chill between batches so it doesn't warm up.

Sorry, I don't remember how many cookies I got out of this recipe but the original recipe makes 1.5 dozen big ones so you may get at least double that if you make small ones.
