Lemons/ limes are frequently used in Indian cooking to give food their characteristic tang as in rasams, salads and other dishes. As far as I know, we use them in larger quantities generally for making pickles.
The first time I made a lemon anything with a lot of lemon, was the Lemon Meringue Pie for the Daring Bakers challenge last month. And I’m not sure I really liked the level of tartness of the lemon filling in that.
I decided to give making lemon cookies a go because I felt that a hint of lemon, without the tartness, would be nice. And I’m happy to say I was proved right. These cookies turned out crisp and full of flavour. This is how I made them.
