Hanukkah Lemon Star Cookies Recipe #SundaySupper

November 24, 2013

Hanukkah Lemon Star CookiesAnother cookie recipe. This sugar cookie can be shaped as anything but hey, I have a Star of David cookie cutter and it’s almost Hanukkah! Hanukkah and Thanksgiving all on the same day, sounds like a recipe for lots of tasty food! We’re heading out to a friend’s house, or maybe two. Lots of time with friends since family are far away.

Hanukkah Lemon Star Cookies-2This recipe gets a bit of tang from sour cream. Perfect if you are like us and can never use up a whole container of sour cream, it’s just not on our condiment list usually. A little bit of lemon to brighten things up as well. Plus, coloured sugar. That’s always festive! You can make the dough ahead and keep it in the fridge for a few days if needed. Perfect if you want fresh cookies the day of your holiday or if you just don’t have time to make everything on the same day.

    Some people think sugar cookies are boring but they are my favourite holiday cookie. And to me a sugar cookie just isn’t the same without lemon.

    Frosted sugar cookies are one of my favorites especially during the holidays. They can be decorated in such festive ways. I like you addition of lemon to give a freshness to them also.
