To give these thin, delicate wafers the intense flavor we wanted, we needed more than just lemon juice.
Why This Recipe Works
We wanted a thin and crispy delicate cookie packed with lemon flavor. We found that a combination of flour and cornstarch made for the most tender, crispy cookie. Rolling out the dough and using cookie cutters gave us the most consistent shape across cookies. Lemon juice and lemon extract impart a sour-sweet lemon tang, and a light lemon glaze enforces the citrus flavor.
