Who’s Hungry? – The Blonde Cookies


Here I am sweeties with our new agenda “Who’s Hungry?“…another week, another recipe ready for you ;) This week I collaborated with Elizabeth Minett, a fantastic blogger who loves to mix fashion and food. We made a lemon poppy seed cookie recipe, these lemon poppyseed cookies are light and fluffy and perfect for a summer treat!

For the cookies:
1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
1/2 tsp baking powder
1/4 tsp salt
1 Tblsp poppy seeds
8 Tblsp unsalted butter, at room temp.
2/3 cup sugar
1 Tblsp lemon zest (about 2 lemons zested)
1 1/2 Tblsp freshly squeezed lemon juice
1 tsp almond extract
1 large egg, at room temp.

For the glaze:
1/2 cup icing sugar
2 Tblsp freshly squeezed lemon juice
1 Tblsp lemon zest for topping

Dolcezze eccomi di nuovo con la nostra nuova rubrica “Who’s Hungry?“…un’altra settimana, un’altra ricetta ;) Stavolta mi ha aiutato una bravissima blogger che ama mixare moda e cucina, Elizabeth Minett. Abbiamo preparato dei superlativi biscotti al limone e semi di papavero, una ricetta leggera perfetta per l’estate!

Per i biscotti:
1 1/2 tazze di farina
1/2 lievito in polvere
1/4 cucchiaino di sale
1 cucchiaio di semi di papavero
8 cucchiai di burro non salato a temperatura ambiente
2/3 tazza di zucchero
1 cucchiaio di scorza di limone (equivale più o meno all’utilizzo di due limoni)
1 1/2 cucchiaio di succo di limone appena spremuto
1 cucchiaino di estratto di mandorle
1 uovo a temperatura ambiente

Per la glassa:
1/2 tazza di zucchero a velo
2 cucchiaio di succo di limone appena spremuto
1 cucchiaio di scorza di limone da mettere sul biscotto



For the cookies:
1. Preheat the oven to 350F/180C. Line two cookie sheets with parchment paper and set aside.
2. In a medium bowl, whisk together the flour, baking powder, salt and poppy seeds. Set aside.
3. In a standmixer, or with electric beaters, cream the butter, sugar, lemon zest and lemon juice on medium speed until light and fluffy (about 2 mins). Add the almond extract and egg until well blended. On low speed, add in the dry ingredients until combined.
4. Roll tablespoon full balls of dough in your hands, and place on the prepared cookie sheets about 2 inches apart. Press down gently on each ball to flatten a bit (but not too flat!)
5. Bake for 8-10mins, or until the bottoms and edges are golden brown. Do not let the tops brown.
6. Remove from the oven and allow to cool.

For the glaze:
1. In a medium bowl, combine the icing sugar and lemon juice until you get a thin and runny icing glaze.
2. Dip each cookie top in the glaze and place back onto the cookie sheet to dry.
3. When the glaze is almost dry, sprinkle each cookie with lemon zest.

Enjoy it my loves ;)


Per i biscotti:
1. Iniziare a riscaldare il forno a 180°C. Preparare due teglie con carta da forno e metterle in disparte.
2. Mixare con una frusta, in un recipiente di medie dimensioni, la farina, il lievito, il sale e i semi di papavero.
3. Con un robot da cucina, o con le fruste elettriche, montare il burro, lo zucchero, la scorza di limone e il succo di limone a media velocità fino ad ottenere un composto soffice e leggero (per circa 2 minuti). Aggiungere l’estratto di mandorle e le uova fino a ottenere un composto ben amalgamato. A bassa velocità, aggiungere gli ingredienti secchi fino ad amalgamare il tutto.
4. Creare con le mani delle palline di pasta grandi quanto un cucchiaio e metterle nelle teglie a circa 2 cm di distanza l’una dall’altra. Premere delicatamente verso il basso su ogni pallina per appiattirle un po’ (ma non troppo!)
5. Cuocere in forno per circa 8-10 minuti, o fino a quando il fondo e i bordi sono dorati.
6. Togliere dal forno e lasciare raffreddare.

Per la glassa:
1. In un recipiente di medie dimensioni, unire lo zucchero a velo e il succo di limone fino ad ottenere una glassa sottile e densa.
2. Immergere la parte superiore di ogni biscotto nella glassa e riporlo nuovamente sulla teglia per farlo raffreddare.
3. Quando la glassa è quasi asciutta, cospargere ogni biscotto con scorza di limone.

Enjoy it my loves ;)

    Lemon oil may be used in aromatherapy. Researchers at The Ohio State University found that lemon oil aroma does not influence the human immune system, but may enhance mood.

    There’s just something special about homemade cookies, especially chocolate chip cookies, so far as I’m concerned. It’s a great family activity, something even children can help with, and everyone loves eating the results.-
