The Technique

Lemon-Poppy Seed Tea Cookies

Lemon-Poppy Seed Tea Cookies are wonderful to serve guests when bridal showers, baby showers & garden parties are in order. The cookies have a similar texture to that of shortbread without the need to roll & cut the dough. Allow them to cool completely before rolling in the powdered sugar. Prepare them up to two days ahead of time or freeze the cookies up to one month. Allow to thaw on the countertop then reroll the Lemon-Poppy Seed Tea Cookies in powdered sugar before arranging on platters. Learn how to make this crowd-pleasing classic in your very own kitchen.

This shortbread-style, tart dough mellows once baked when the cookies are finished with a bit of additional powdered sugar.

1/2 cup butter
1/2 cup powdered sugar
1/2 tsp lemon zest
1 Tbsp fresh lemon juice
1/2 tsp vanilla
1 1/4 cups all purpose flour
2 tsp poppy seeds
1/4 tsp kosher salt
Powdered sugar

Preheat the oven to 325 degrees. Beat the butter & the powdered sugar with an electric stand mixer on Medium speed until creamy, about 4 minutes. Add the lemon zest, the lemon juice & the vanilla mixing until well blended. Stop the mixer occasionally & scrape down the sides of the bowl with a rubber spatula. Whisk together the flour, the poppy seeds & the salt in a small bowl. Add to the butter mixture & blend on Low speed just until combined. Portion the dough using a very small spring release disher rolling into approximately 3/4-inch portions. Place the dough onto parchment paper-lined half sheet pans. Bake 13 to 15 minutes or until lightly browned on the bottoms. Cool completely. Roll in powdered sugar.
