Lemony German Cookies

IMG_2104 lemony german cookies-ed

These lemony German Cookies are seriously addictive. They melt in your mouth and are so easy to make. The above batch is made with the help of my boys, aged 3 and 5.

German Cookies have made its way around food blogs and now to mine:

I have adapted my recipe from Vivian Pang Kitchen:


125g butter (softened at room temperature)

40g icing sugar

125g potato starch

80g cake flour (can be replaced by plain flour)


1. Beat softened butter and icing sugar till light and fluffy. Add in 3 drops of lemon oil. (I use doterra lemon oil which is a high grade edible essential oil purchased from Aromacompass) Sift in potato starch and flour, mix to form soft dough.

2. Roll into small ball, arrange on lined baking pan and press lightly with a fork. (tip 1: if dough is too soft, leave in fridge for 15 mins before moulding. tip 2: dip fork in a cup of water each time before pressing on cookies to prevent sticking.)

3. Bake in preheated oven at 170C for 15 minutes.

Different Variants:

I have made charcoal and matcha variants. They both tasted great especially the matcha cookies. Everybody loves it. To make them, add a tsp of charcoal powder or matcha powder to above recipe in step (1). I would also try milo and chocolate variants in my next attempt. For the chocolate variant, I will also add 3 drops of doterra peppermint. After all, what is a cup of afternoon tea without chocolate and peppermint 🙂
