Homemade Raisin and Lemon Cookies by peachpurple

 

I have to admit it, I am a fanatic cookie baker.

I  find it simply love to bake cookies at home and I don’t it a chore at all.

Baking cookies give me the pleasure and joy when my family members absolutely enjoyed munching these cookies with tea or coffee.

This is a little different from other cookies that I had baked.

It is a low cholesterol cookie, Raisin and Lemon Cookies which I had found the recipe in a Low cholesterol segment.

It gives the store bought cookie look which I am sure anyone would fall in love with these cookies at first glance.

Dip cookie cutters into the flour so that the cookie dough does not stick into it.

Stamp the cookies out, transfer to the lightly greased baking sheet

Bake in oven for 15 minutes or until the cookies turn golden brown.

The cookies may feel soft after freshly bake.

Leave them to cool on the rack for 10 minutes.

You will be amazed that these cookies turn firm and crunchy after that.

Store in air tight container.
