If I don’t have a shopping list, I’m aimless in the grocery store and I end up buying things I don’t really need. This is why I found myself with a couple of purposeless lemons.
I thought I’d try to make this recipe for lemon spritz cookies since the recipe looked easy. But there’s no call for baking powder, baking soda, or eggs. A strange recipe but one that I thought I’d try anyway.
When I was mixing everything together, I realized that the mix was too crumbly and was never going to work. So I added 1 egg. When I noticed it was starting to come together but still needed more, I added one more egg.
Also, my lemons must have been very juicy too because I squeezed the juice from 1 lemon which meant there was about 3-4 TBSP of juice.
The cookies were tart and lemon-y. I liked them!
