Cuban Lemon Cookie / Tortical de Moron

Lemon is always a hit flavor with everyone, from kids to elders. This wheat cookie transforms into very delicious snack just by adding lemon zest. This is a very well known cookie from Cuban. 

Recipe Cuisine : International | Recipe Category: Baking
Preparation Time: 10 mins  | Cooking Time: 10 mins | Yields: 20 cookies
Wheat Flour
¾ cup
6 tbsp
¼ cup
Lemon Zest*
1 ½ tsps

* Lemon Zest:
1. Wash and dry the lemon using the kitchen towel.
2. Grate the skin of the lemon using the grater. You should not grate till the end of the lemon (till the white part). Collect the lemon zest and keep it aside.

1. Beat the butter with electric beater or wire whisk till it becomes fluffy.
2. Then add icing sugar and mix them well. Then beat till it reaches fluffy consistency.
3. Now add the wheat flour and lemon zest. Mix them well. Knead it into a soft and pliable dough. Leave it for 10 mins.
4. Roll the dough into ½ inch thickness circle (like chapathi) on the dry rolling surface using the rolling pin. Before rolling, sprinkle the wheat flour over the rolling surface to avoid the flour getting sticky.
5. Now cut the rolled circle using the cookie cutter. I have used hexagon shape cutter.
6. Take out the cookies using the flat spatula and keep it on the ungreased baking tray. Leave ½ inch space between the cookies.
7. Preheat the oven for 200 degree Celsius.
8. Bake the cookies for 10 mins at 180 degree Celsius.
9. Allow it to cool down completely and then take them out from the tray. Again cool them on wire rack.

       Tasty and aromatic cookies are ready!!!
