Lemon Cream Cheese Cookies Recipe
Try these delicious lemon cream cheese cookies with essential oil!
These cookies are yummy – nice and soft on the inside with a light lemon flavor. All of the lemon flavor is from essential oil!
You want the butter to be softened to about room temperature, but not melted. I let the cream cheese sit out with the butter too. Might as well! It only makes the mixing even easier. 🙂 (Keep the cream cheese covered with plastic wrap or something so it doesn’t dry out.)
There it is – all of the lemon flavor packed into mere drops of oil. It gives a nice, light lemon flavor, but not too lemony. You can add a few more drops for more lemon, if you want, but don’t add too many more! FYI – If you taste the raw cookie dough to try to gauge the flavor, you will want to remember that raw dough tastes stronger than the baked cookie will.
Lemon Essential Oil
Did you know that lemon essential oil is from the rind of the lemon? This makes the oil quite a bit different from lemon juice. The scientific composition of each is different and the oil is more concentrated too. Lemon essential oil enhances flavor and it is also very easy to store and keep on hand for future recipes, plus it has many other uses…
- Cleanse and purify the air and surfaces
- Naturally cleanse the body and aid in digestion
- Support healthy respiratory function
- Promote a positive mood
There are lots of ways to use lemon essential oil! If you want to learn more about the essential oils we use and recommend, email us at seekingwellness at fabulesslyfrugal dot com or text us at 208-907-OILS.
If you don’t have a cookie scoop yet, I highly recommend getting one. Easy peasy. Just drop the dough onto a baking sheet – 1 dozen on 1 pan. Bake until the edges are set – about 9 to 10 minutes.
