  • Summary

    These trompe l'oeil lemon-slice cookies must be made using a Silpat -- they will stick if made on parchment. For a simple variation, make the dough into two logs, and roll them in Lemon Sugar. Chill the logs, cut each into eighteen 1/3-inch-thick slices, and bake on parchment-lined baking sheets.

    Ingredients

    • 3 cups all-purpose flour, plus more for rolling out dough
    • 1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
    • 3/4 teaspoon salt
    • 2 tablespoons grated lemon zest
    • 1 1/2 cups sugar
    • 1 cup (2 sticks) unsalted butter, softened
    • 1/2 teaspoon lemon oil
    • 4 large egg yolks
    • 3 dozen Candied Lemon Slices, patted dry on paper towels
