Lemon Crinkle Cookies + Cookbook Update

Cooking With Kids Cookbook Coming Soon

It’s official! We turned in all 101 recipes for the Cooking With Kids cookbook! This has been such a fun adventure with the kiddos. We are also sharing our recipe for Lemon Crinkle Cookies today because it was the last recipe we photographed and felt like a fun treat to celebrate with. These fluffy little mounds of tart dough, are covered in sweet powdered sugar! This is a tasty dessert for any day. Read on to learn how to make lemon crinkle cookies and get the latest scoop on the cookbook. 

Cooking With Kids

We have a new name for the cookbook! Instead of “Kids in the Kitchen”, It will be called “Cooking With Kids!” After a lot of research, the publisher found this new name was not yet taken and would be the best fit for this book. I really like the name and I hope you do too! I can’t believe we submitted all of the recipes this week. It was a little bittersweet because we’ve been having so much fun with it. It’s super exciting to have it all submitted though and I can’t wait for the next steps. 

Cooking with Kids  

We have another concept in mind that I can’t wait to share with you, but I will wait till we know if it’s a go. I also have plans to create more new recipes for the blog and bring you new stories starting next week! Now, let’s get to these cookies!
Baking in the kitchen

Lemon Crinkle Cookie Dough

I really love how easy these cookies are to make. They have a vibrant flavor and are so simple. The dough is like any other start to a cookie dough, but it has lemon zest and lemon juice! Once the dough is made, simply roll the balls of dough into powdered sugar and bake! 

Roll the cookies in powdered sugar
