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!

Small Batch Brown Sugar Cookies (egg-free)

Tonight I decided to try making a cookie without eggs and the result was delicious!

When I first took them out of the oven (and let them cool slightly) they were crispy on the outside and chewy in the middle. As I let them sit they got crispier but the flavour of these cookies is so fabulous that it doesn't matter!

Normally chewy cookies are what I like, but I think this cookie could be one of my new favourites.

I made this recipe again but I tried to double it for Christmas. I think I may have measured something incorrectly because they were completely different from the first time (as shown in the previous photo). They were delicious though, and I wish I knew what I did wrong so I can do it again! The inside was like a chewy Pillsbury cookie, and the outside was kind of lacy and crisp.

Small Batch Brown Sugar Cookies
Makes 15 cookies

Ingredients
  • 1/3 cup unsalted butter, softened
  • 1/2 cup dark brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/8 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • extra brown sugar for rolling (optional)
Directions
  1. Preheat the oven to 375F and line a cookie sheet with parchment.
  2. In a medium bowl, beat the butter and sugar together with a wooden spoon. I only beat it for about 30 seconds. Add the dry ingredients and mix to combine.
  3. Using a small cookie scoop, make balls of dough and roll them in extra sugar if you want to. I rolled some in sugar and left some without it but really couldn't tell the difference once they were baked. Place them about 2" on the prepared baking sheet (they will spread out a lot) and flatten them slightly with your fingers.
  4. Bake for about 10 minutes or until the edges start to turn golden. You'll have to leave them on the baking sheet for at least a minute to firm up before transferring to a wire rack.
