Day 4 of 25 Days – Lemon Drop Cookies

These are so much fun.  Not only do you get  little crunchy bits of lemon drop candy in the cookie, but after the cookie is finished you get a lemon drop candy to suck on and enjoy long after the cookie is gone.  It’s like 2 for 1.  It’s great, all that lemony goodness in one little cookie. So refreshing!

Yummy Lemon Drop Cookies
1/2 cup butter, softened
3/4 cup sugar
1 egg
1 tablespoon half and half cream
1 teaspoon grated lemon peel
1-1/2 cups All-purpose Gluten Free Flour (I used Jules Gluten Free)
1/2 cup finely crushed lemon drop candies
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/4 teaspoon salt

In a large blow, cream butter and sugar until light and fluffy.  Beat in the egg, cream and peel.  Combine the flour, lemon drops, baking powder and salt; gradually add to the creamed mixture and nix well.

Drop by rounded teaspoonfuls that are 3 inches apart onto greased baking sheets or with a Silpat mat.  Add one whole lemon drop candy on top of round.  Bake at 350  F for 10 minutes or until edges are lightly browned.  Make sure to watch baking time as oven temperatures vary.  Cool for 2 minutes before removing to wire racks.
