Soft-Baked Lemon Almond Cream Cookies

Recipe by Renee Shelton

These cookies are cake-like, and the lemon zest gives it a naturally light lemon-yellow color.


  • Sliced almonds, lightly toasted, as needed, about 1/2 cup
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar, packed
  • 2 eggs, large
  • 1 cup cream
  • 2 cups flour
  • 1 tablespoon finely grated lemon zest
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt


  1. Mix the sugars and eggs in a large mixing bowl. Add in the cream. In a separate bowl stir together the flour, zest, baking soda and salt; incorporate this into the cream batter.
  2. Using a teaspoon or soup spoon, spoon the batter onto a sheet of parchment paper over a baking sheet. Sprinkle with sliced almonds, and bake in a 350F oven until browned around the edges. The cookies will be soft and cake-like. Cookies are best if used same or next day.
