This one for my mother

Posted on

My mom, although the best cook on this planet as per me, is a very fussy eater. She would prefer not to eat stuff which is generally cooked by me.

I know it puts me in a wrong spot, but it’s simply because she is not a big fan of chocolates when it’s baked. And my baking generally revolves around chocolates as it’s my first love.

So while I was recovering from cold and lethargy over a boring Monday, I decided to makes something for my mom, for a change. She is big fan of ginger and lemon. She has to have her cup of lemon and ginger tea to make her day better.

My creation for my mum? Lemon and ginger cookies.

She loved them so much; she has already finished half the stock by herself, with no help what-so-ever from my Dad.


  •  250gm butter
  • 250gm icing sugar
  • 250gm all purpose flour
  • One table spoon lemon rind
  • One teaspoon fresh ground ginger



  • Grate rind off a fresh lemon
  • Take a piece of ginger and roughly beat it up to create a kind of paste or rough small pieces. The aim is, that the pieces should not come in mouth while eating the cookies, but the flavor of the ginger should definately be there in the cookie 
  • In a bowl, mix butter, lemon rind, and ginger pieces. Beat it for some time till the butter is creamy
  • Add sugar to the mixture till mixture turns a little fluffy or doubles up a little
  • Add flour to the mixture.
  • If you feel the need, mix yellow color or lemon essence to the mixture, I on personal account prefer to keep the color and flavors as natural as possible.
  • Cover the mixture with a cling wrap and keep in the fridge for 30 min
  • Preheat the oven on 180° C
  • Take the mixture out of the fridge, take small piece of one teaspoon, make them in small balls and press, or you can give it a desired shape.
  • Put the cookies on a greased cookie plate and put it in the oven
  • Cook it for 15-20 min or till light golden brown
  • Take it out of the oven when done, and let it cool till it’s turned into crispy crunchy constancy

Note: If you want, you can keep the cookie batter in fridge and use to make fresh cookies everyday
