Melt in Your Mouth Lemon Cookies
You are going to absolutely love these delicious, soft and fluffy cookies that just melt in your mouth. They are a great one to serve in the summer with tea on the back porch for friends. The ultimate comfort food. One of the best things about using essential oils in your baking is that if you don’t have lemons on hand- no big deal! You just use your doTERRA essential oils which are ready to go in your cupboard. They also have an easy and smooth taste and are a great addition to your baking. Plus that makes these cookies good for you right?
- 2 ounces softened cream cheese
- 6 Tablespoons of softened unsalted butter
- 1/4 heaping cup of powdered sugar (extra reserved on the side for rolling cookies)
- 3/4 cup white sugar
- 1 egg
- 1/2 teaspoon of Vanilla
- 1/4 teaspoon Salt
- 1/4 teaspoon baking soda
- 1/4 teaspoon baking powder
- 1 3/4 cup flour
- 15 drops doTERRA Lemon essential oil
Start by heating the oven to 350 degrees. In a large mixing bowl, cream together the sugars, butter and cream cheese until nice and smooth. Then add the vanilla, doTERRA Lemon essential oil and egg and beat until mixed in. In a separate bowl combine all dry ingredients and then slowly add and incorporate the dry into the wet while mixing on low until they are well combined. Shape dough into balls and place on cookie sheets and bake for 9-10 minutes. After they have been removed from the oven then dust the cookies with a little powdered sugar. Serve warm or cooled but enjoy! Pairs great with our Lavender Lemonade recipe on a hot day.
