Whole Wheat Lemon Ginger Cookies

" Winter = More Tea/Coffee = More Cookies = Warmth = Lemon Ginger Cookies "


These cookies were a hit in my house as well as among friends who got to taste them :) 
They are so yummy that will make your tummy always have some space for these !!!


    • 1 cup all-purpose flour, spooned and leveled
    • 2 tablespoons finely chopped crystallized ginger (about 1 ounce)
    • 1 tablespoon finely grated lemon zest
    • 1/4 teaspoon baking soda
    • 1/2 cup (1 stick) unsalted butter, room temperature
    • 1/4 cup granulated sugar
    • 1/4 cup packed light-brown sugar
    • 1/2 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
    • 1 egg yolk, room temperature


  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees, with racks in upper and lower thirds. In a medium bowl, whisk together flour, ginger, lemon zest, and baking soda. In a large bowl, using an electric mixer, beat butter, granulated and brown sugars, vanilla, and egg yolk on medium until fluffy, about 8 minutes, scraping down bowl as needed. With mixer on low, gradually add flour mixture and beat just until combined.
  • Place coarse sugar in a small bowl. Roll rounded teaspoons of dough into balls. Place, 2 inches apart, on two parchment-lined rimmed baking sheets. Bake until edges are slightly brown, 14 minutes, rotating sheets halfway through. 

Enjoy them anytime :)If you make them please share your experiences.
