Oven baked lemon wafers. Very tasty dessert baked in oven.


  • 8 tablespoons unsalted butter,at room temperature
  • 1 cup sugar,plus more for sprinkling
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • finely grated lemon zest of 1 lemon
  • 4 teaspoons freshly squeezed lemon juice
  • 1/2 teaspoon lemon extract
  • 2 large egg whites,at room temperature,lightly beaten
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/4 cup cornstarch


Step 1

Preheat the oven to 375°F (190°C).

Step 2

Line 2 baking sheets with parchment paper.

Step 3

In a large mixing bowl,combine the butter,sugar and salt. Cream with electric mixer until fluffy.

Step 4

Beat in the lemon zest,juice, and lemon extract. Gradually beat in the egg whites until completely incorporated.

Step 5

Scrape down the sides of the bowl with a rubber spatula and beat for a few seconds. Sift the flour and cornstarch into the bowl and stir it in by hand with a wooden spoon or rubber spatula. Transfer the dough to a pastry tube fitted with 1/2-inch(1 cm) round tip.

Step 6

Pipe dollops of the dough about 1¼ inches(2.5 cm) in diameter,2 inches(5 cm) apart on the prepared baking sheets. Lightly sprinkle tops with remaining sugar. Bake until the cookies have about a 1/4-inch(0.6 cm) golden brown ring around the edges,about 15-17 minutes. Cool oven baked lemon wafers completely on the baking sheets.
