LEMon Curd Cookies



½ cup - Unsalted butter, softened
¼ cup - caster sugar or powdered sugar
1 egg yolk (without white)
½ tablespoon - Grated lemon zest
1 tbsp - Lemon juice
½ teaspoon - Salt
1¼ cup - All-purpose flour
½ cup - Lemon curd

Heat the oven to 180 ° C. Line a baking sheet with a sheet of parchment paper.
Cream butter and sugar in a stand mixer until smooth and pale. About 3 to 4 minutes.
Stir in the yolk, lemon zest, lemon juice and salt.
With the mixer on low (speed 1), stir in the flour until moist lumps form.
Gather the dough with your hand and make a ball. Don't knead it, just pull it together by handling it very lightly.
Shape 1 tablespoon of dough into 1-inch balls. Place the balls on prepared sheets, spacing them 1 inch apart.
Using a floured finger, make a deep cut in the center of each ball.
Just enough to hold 1 teaspoon of lemon curd. Bake cookies until firm and lightly browned on the bottom, about 18 to 20 minutes.
Remove the cookies from the oven. If the depth of the indentation seems to have decreased, press again lightly with a spoon while still hot and immediately fill the indentations with curd.
Bake again for a few minutes just to set the curd. Or if you serve chilled, you can skip cooking the curd.
Sprinkle the cookies lightly with icing sugar before serving.
You can also try the lemon curd tarts.
