I started this blog so my daughters could find all of our family favourite recipes in one place. It has actually grown into more than just the family favourites but also other recipes we've tried out in our kitchen. I don't like to fill up the post with alot of chatter. Sometimes there's a little story to tell, but usually I like to get right to the point. So this is for them, but hope you find some recipes that you like as well. I'll be sharing a lot of recipes, and along the way you'll find some crafty things and maybe some helpful hints too! Welcome!

Lemon Crinkle Cookies

Got a good deal on a bag of lemons the other day and have been cooking and baking with them every since! These cookies would make a nice addition to your Easter table!


2 cups flour
1/2 tsp baking soda
1/4 tsp salt
1/2 cup butter, melted and cooled
1 cup sugar
1 egg
1 egg yolk
2 tbsps fresh lemon juice
3 tsps lemon zest (zest of 2 lemons)
1 tsp vanilla extract
1 tsp lemon extract
powdered sugar to coat (about 1/2 cup)

Mix flour, baking soda and salt together. In a large bowl add melted butter and whisk in sugar. Add egg and egg yolk (see why the butter has to be cooled!) then add the extracts, lemon juice and zest. Stir in the dry ingredients 2 or 3 additions at a time. Wrap in plastic wrap and refrigerate 2 hours.

After the cookie dough has chilled 2 hours remove from fridge and roll in 1" balls. Roll in icing sugar and place 2" apart on a parchment lined baking sheet. Coat well or you may feel you need to dust with more sugar after baking, which is ok but you won't see the "crinkle" effect.

Bake at 325 F for 10-12 minutes.

Store in air tight containter.
Makes approximately 60 - 1" cookies
