Recipe - LEMON MERINGUE COOKIES


By: Maya Moscovich 

Prep time:  5 mins

Cook time:  15 mins

Serves: 45 Cookies



INGREDIENTS

For the Cookies:
2 Cups All Purpose Flour
125g Butter
1 Cup Icing Sugar
2 Egg Yolks
5 Tbsp Water

For the filling:
Lemon Marmalade
(And/ Or) Raspberry Jam

For the Meringue:
2 Egg Whites
¼ Cup Icing Sugar

 
DIRECTIONS

1. Preheat oven to 350F (180C) and layer a baking sheet with parchment paper.


2. In a stand mixer bowl combine the flour, butter, icing sugar and egg yolks. Mix until you get a crumbly mix (that resembles sand). (To quickly soften the butter, grate or cut into small cubes into the mixing bowl.)


3. Gradually, while mixing, add one tbsp water at a time until the dough turns into one soft ball and everything is fully combined. Careful not to over mix it. Stop mixing once combined into dough.


4. Using a teaspoon, scoop the dough one teaspoon at a time and roll each scoop of dough into a small ball. Place on a parchment paper layered baking sheet making sure the balls are about 1” apart.  Gently press on each ball using the back of your palm to create a disc shaped cookie.


5. Bake in the preheated oven for 7-9 minutes. Bottom of cookies should be golden when they are ready.


6. Place the cookies on a wire rack to cool completely.  Once cooled, spread a thick layer of lemon marmalade/ raspberry jam on each cookie and place back onto the baking sheet..


7. Prepare the meringue by whipping the egg whites and icing sugar together on medium-high speed until stiff peaks form. You should get a firm and sable meringue.  Using a piping bag (or a Ziploc bag with a cut opening on the bottom), pipe a bit of meringue on each marmalade/ jam covered cookie.


8. Place the cookies back into the (still) preheated oven for 5 minutes or until meringue is golden.  Remove from the oven, let cool and serve.  Store in an airtight container in one layer.
