Lemon Bar Cookie Cups

At the same time as looking for fun new cookie recipes to strive, I noticed several lemon thumbprint cookie recipes, and I couldn’t withstand turning them into cookie cups. Cookie cups are fun to make, clean, and the possibilities are almost infinite. After I tasted considered one of my lemon cookie cups, I realized it tasted like a lemon bar. 

Those Lemon Bar Cookie Cups are a sweet, barely crumbly cookie full of tart, silky clean lemon curd, dressed up with a sprinkle of powdered sugar.

Lemon Bar Cookie Cups

  •  1/2 cup whole wheat flour
  •  1/2 teaspoon salt
  •  1 3/4 cups all purpose flour
  •  1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  •  1/2 teaspoon cream of tartar
  •  1/2 cup butter, softened
  •  1/2 cup sugar
  •  1/2 cup confectioners’ sugar (powdered sugar)
  •  1/2 cup canola oil
  •  1 egg
  •  1/2 teaspoon lemon extract
  •  1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
  •  3/4 cup lemon curd (recipe below)
  •  powdered sugar for decorating, optional
  •  6 tablespoons unsalted butter, softened at room temperature
  •  1 cup sugar
  •  2 large eggs
  •  2 large egg yolks
  •  2/3 cup fresh lemon juice
  •  1 teaspoon grated lemon zest
  1. Prepare lemon curd.
  2. Preheat oven to 350°.
  3. Combine the flours, salt, baking soda and cream of tartar in a small bowl and set aside.
  4. In a large bowl, cream butter and sugars until light and fluffy. Beat in the oil, egg and extracts. Add flour mixture to creamed mixture and stir until combined.
  5. Drop one tablespoon dough (I used a #50 scoop) into each cup of a greased mini muffin tin. Bake for 8 minutes.
  6. Remove from oven and using the end of a wooden spoon handle, make an indentation in the center of each cookie. Fill with a teaspoon of lemon curd. Return to the oven and bake for an additional 4 minutes, or until cookies are firm and lightly browned on the sides. Remove to wire racks to cool.
  7. Sprinkle the edges of the cookies with powdered sugar.
Lemon Curd:
  1. In a large mixing bowl, beat the butter and sugar with an electric mixer, until well combined. Add the eggs and yolks and beat for 1 min. Add the lemon juice and mix until blended - the mixture will look lumpy.
  2. In a medium, heavy-based saucepan, cook the mixture over low heat until it melts. Increase the heat to medium and cook, stirring constantly, until the mixture thickens. It should leave a path on the back of a spoon and will read 170°F on a thermometer. Don't let the mixture boil. (Once it was completely melted, mine thickened and reached 170º in just a few minutes, so watch it closely.)
  3. Remove the curd from the heat; stir in the lemon zest. Transfer the curd to a bowl. Press plastic wrap on the surface of the lemon curd to keep a skin from forming and chill the curd in the refrigerator. The curd will thicken further as it cools. Covered tightly, it will keep in the refrigerator for a week and in the freezer for 2 months.
