Lemon Pixie Cookie Ingredients

You’ll need almond flour, lemon zest, pure vanilla extract, powdered sweetener, baking soda, butter or coconut oil, salt, and lemon juice.

The recipe calls for almond meal or almond flour, but there are also nut-free options linked for those who prefer to make nut-free lemon cookies.

We do not recommend substituting another flour for almonds here. Wheat flour, coconut flour, and almond flour all work very differently in bread making.

For a fun flavor twist, try substituting orange peel and juice for the lemon.

how to make lemon cookies

Melt butter or oil and stir all ingredients in a large mixing bowl to form cookie dough.

Roll into a ball of cookie dough. Make a ball using a cookie scoop. For a softer, crunchier cookie, refrigerate until balls are cool or overnight. Otherwise, bake immediately.

Preheat oven to 325 degrees Fahrenheit. Roll the balls in powdered sugar or erythritol, if desired, and place the cookie balls on a parchment-lined baking tray. Bake on the center rack of the oven for 10 minutes.

Press the cookie with a spoon to give it a cookie shape. It is delicate when hot, so please allow it to cool before handling.

Making cookies with a scale

If you prefer grams instead of cups, use the following amounts:

120 grams of almond flour, 15 grams of powdered sugar or erythritol, 30 grams of butter or oil, 10 grams of lemon juice, and 5 grams of pure vanilla extract.

Also, don’t forget to add salt, baking soda and lemon zest.

The Pixie recipe was adapted from my Keto Cookies and Keto Chocolate Cookies and these chewy Keto Peanut Butter Cookies.
