Lemon + Thyme Shortbread Cookies

Lemony, buttery, simple. Small twist on a favorite, and they were definitely a hit!

You’ll need:

Processed with VSCO with a6 preset

  1. Whisk lemon zest, flour, thyme, and salt in a small bowl. Set aside
  2. Using a mixer, beat the butter and confectioners sugar until blended and smooth. Beat in the vanilla extract and lemon juice. Carefully add the flour mixture and mix well until combined. Round the dough into a ball and wrap in plastic. Chill for 1 hour.
  3. Preheat oven to 325 degrees F. Spray a large baking pan or lay down parchment paper and set aside.
  4. Sprinkle some flour on your flat surface and roll out the dough until it’s about 1/4 inch thick. Cut into shape of your choice using a lightly floured cookie cutter. Bake for about 10 minutes or until slightly brown. Remove cookies from oven and set on cooling rack.
  5. While cooling, whip up your icing by using about 1-2 cup of confectioners sugar + fresh lemon juice. I eyed it out, but mix until desired consistency.
  6. Once completely cool, take a spoon and drizzle icing over cookies as thick or thin as you’d like.
  7. Garnish with thyme for presentation + enjoy!

Yields: 20 cookies

  • hola Pablo. #casamalca #liketkit http://liketk.it/2Dtxa @liketoknow.it
  • A couple of days ago we rented a car and drove an hour and 45 minutes deep into the jungle to visit this incredible cenoté. We witnessed an ancient Mayan wedding celebration which was one of the most incredible things we’ve ever seen. There were local cenotés near tulum but this experience was well worth the drive💀
  • our narcos inspired engagement session was taken at @casamalca - Pablo Escobar’s old private getaway 🇨🇴 👨🏻🛩💰💃🏼the photo shoot was short because we were both suffering from too many spicy margaritas from the night before (it wouldn’t be us if we weren’t hungover for our engagement pictures🤣) the rest of the photos are up on the blog! • link in bio • @mayoorquiin #tulum #tulummexico
  • Woke up in a paradise☁️
La Valise is an intimate, exclusive bungalow with only 9 rooms tucked away between the jungle and white sand beaches. It felt like our own private getaway! We extended our trip an extra night and Pasquale actually picked out this eco chic hotel (can you tell I’m rubbing off on him?😉) La Valise exceeded our expectations going above and beyond to make sure we felt right at home from the minute we got there. They noticed Pasquale’s birthday on his passport and even set up a special surprise for us!
Our dreamy room had a cozy bed and open shower with one of the cleanest beaches in Tulum - unfortunately there is a bad seaweed problem on the coast right now but they are working hard to mitigate it
You won’t find a warmer or more welcoming staff than at @lavalisetulum so if you have the opportunity to visit I highly recommend it!
  • sneak peak of our engagement photos🕊🕊 you make my heart so happy, I can’t wait to marry you🤘🏼
  • we’re supposed to be on the road heading to chichén itza but instead I’m laying here📍nursing a gnarly hangover. I think the bartender at casa malca misunderstood my tequila order as TE KILL HER.
  • on a spicy margarita diet🌶 #casamalca
