Lemon-Filled Cookies


I ordered these little molds from King Arthur Flour in December, after browsing through their recipes online. I thought they looked pretty and might be fun to make for some occasion. Slow Bowl seemed like the perfect opportunity.

1 cup soft butter
1/2 cup confectioners' sugar
1 tablespoon lemon powder (from King Arthur)
1/8 teaspoon lemon oil (from King Arthur)
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 large egg yolk
1 1/2 cups Flour
1/2 cup Hi-maize® Natural Fiber, or 1/2 cup cornstarch

Beat the butter, sugar, lemon powder, lemon oil, salt, and vanilla until blended. Mix in the egg yolk, flour, and Hi-maize or cornstarch until well blended. Press 1/2 teaspoonful of dough into each lightly greased mold.


Place molds on a baking sheet, and bake in a preheated 375°F oven for 10 to 12 minutes.


Cool and remove cookies from molds. Just let them cool for about 10 minutes. the molds have a built-in "handle". Just grab it and lightly bang the edge of mold against your counter. The cookies will pop right out.


They can cool completely on drying racks while you bake the next batch!


Now make the filling/glaze:

1/4 cup melted butter
1 tablespoon lemon powder
1 1/2 cups confectioners' sugar
yellow food coloring (optional)

Beat together, and spread a little filling on the flat side of each cookie. Work quickly, as the icing thickens quickly. If this happens, just add a small splash of milk, and stir.
Press two cookies together to make a "sandwich".


Let set completely before dipping each "lemon" into the remaining glaze to coat it completely. (I had to make a whole second batch of glaze, and thin it even more to "dip" the cookies.) Place on parchment paper to allow glaze to set.


Arrange on a plate or in a basket with fresh lemon leaves for garnish.


King Arthur also has a nutty cookie recipe for these molds with a chocolate filling. Then they look like little walnuts.

Oh, I am so glad you posted this recipe. I LOVED the lemon cookies!

Thanks, Palma!

Palma-Those cookies are adorable. They look like so much work-you must have a lot more patience than I do!

Barb Cabot:

Lovely works of art and they taste divine!


Oh, those look so pretty and delicious! A lemon-lover's dream come true!

I love the idea of lemon powder, even though I have no idea what it might contain (dried lemon? flour? cornstarch?)



The lemon powder contains "corn syrup solids", lemon juice and lemon oil.

Cool molds. I love how you stick them together with the filling and then cover them in the glaze/filling. Much too complicated for me to make though. They sure do look delicious!


cute! Interesting that we both posted cookie recipes today.


Do you know we visited King Arthur when we were in Vermont last summer. It's not as big as I thought it would be but this reminds me, I want to go order some stuff.

Terry (teaberry):

Wow, they're perfetto!

Wait, wait!
Palma, that's unfair. Lemon is one of my all-time favorite flavors...this is just too much like torture!!!
They look amazing...ok, now I have to get off the sofa and get baking.

Too adorable! Lots of work, though, you must be a patient cook!


Lucky me, I managed to take the last 4 home with me on Monday morning - they were beyond delicious. And I do have a really nice picture of you and the lemon cookie plate, when I can get some time to play with the pics, I will post it.


This looks wonderful and I am sure tasted fantastic too. I went to King Arthur On line Catalog and found no molds for sale. I called them and I was told they no longer carry the molds because the price went up three-fold.

Any ideas where I can purchase some? Will the Walnut Cookie Mold work? I googled Lemon Cookie Mold, but no success anywhere.


Eden, those ARE the walnut cookie molds!
They have three different recipes to use with them: the walnut/chocolate, the lemon ones I made, and a strawberry version that you can dip in chocolate to look like a chocolate dipped strawberry.

Hi, I want to know how i can to find this mold in internet to by. How is it name? Thanks.
