Here are some helpful tips and tricks
Adding a glaze to your cookies gives them extra flavor and makes them look extra beautiful. There are many glaze versions. For a keto lemon one all you will need to do is use around half a cup of erythritol, a tablespoon of butter, two teaspoons of water and at least a teaspoon of lemon extract. Make sure to glaze the cookies after they have cooled down.
Powdered Sugar Coating
If you want to give the cookies a nice, crackly look here is how you can achieve this. All you need to do is take a lot of powdered sugar and coat the cookies excessively with it. Do this before baking them. It’s important to use a lot of sugar as it will melt into the cookies if it is not enough.
Use Fresh Lemons
Since lemons are the main star of these cookies, it’s important to pick your ingredients correctly. Using fresh lemons instead of bottled juice gives them a much fresher, flavorful and better taste. While bottled juice will also work, it doesn’t give the same benefits. Fresh juice also has no additives and preservatives.
One of the best things about these cookies is that they are customizable. What we mean by this is that while they are lemon cookies, if you do not enjoy lemons, you can use another citrus. Make them with oranges or limes.
If they somehow don’t get eaten, or you made a double batch to have some for later on, here is how to store them. Make sure you store them in a tightly sealed container. You can keep them both in the refrigerator or at room temperature. They will be good for around a week. You can also keep them in the freezer for up to six months.
