Get started!


1/2 cup Land O Lakes® Butter, softened

1/2 cup sugar

1 large Land O Lakes® Egg (yolk only)

1 tablespoon freshly grated lemon zest

1 tablespoon lemon juice

1 1/4 cups all-purpose flour

1/2 teaspoon baking powder

1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon

1/4 teaspoon salt

1/2 cup chopped pecans

2 tablespoons coarse grain sugar

How to make

  1. STEP 1

    Combine butter, 1/2 cup sugar and egg yolk in bowl; beat at medium speed until creamy. Add lemon zest and lemon juice; continue beating until well mixed. Add flour, baking powder, cinnamon and salt; beat at low speed until well mixed. Stir in pecans.

  2. STEP 2

    Shape dough into 2 (6-inch) logs. Wrap each in plastic food wrap. Refrigerate at least 2 hours until very firm.

  3. STEP 3

    Heat oven to 375°F.

  4. STEP 4

    Cut logs into 1/4-inch slices with sharp knife. Place 1 inch apart onto ungreased cookie sheets. Sprinkle tops with coarse grain sugar. Bake 7-9 minutes or until cookies are lightly browned around edges. Remove to cooling rack. Cool completely.

Tip #1

Cookie dough logs will keep in refrigerator up to a week. For longer storage, freeze up to 2 months. To thaw, place in refrigerator at least 12 hours. Slice and bake as directed.
