Lemon Poppyseed Cookies were the choice of Hannah from City Interlude for this week’s challenge. They sounded good until I saw the recipe (thanks Brette for emailing it to me). I do find alot of the desserts too sweet that Martha produces, and with this having the same quantity of flour to sugar I was skeptical and the lack of lemon also had me querying the recipe. However, they were easy to make and I had all the ingredients (including poppy seeds!) so I was happy as our household has been exceptionally busy all weekend.
I couldn’t get 26 out of mine, I only managed 13, which I assume means that I made mine far too big, but they looked like cookie size when they came out of the oven so who knows.
The verdict, well we didn’t like them. They didn’t taste much of lemon, and if I did make these again I would substitute the vanilla for lemon extract, or maybe make some lemon icing. I don’t know. Also, they had a bit of an after taste – but that may just be me.
