Easy and delicious! These lemon poppyseed cookies are crispy on the outside, tender on the inside, tangy from lemon and sweet from white chocolate glaze. If you love lemon, these are the cookies for you.
- Preheat oven to 180C or 160C fan-forced. Line two baking trays with baking paper. Using an electric mixer, beat butter and raw sugar until pale and creamy. Beat in egg until combined.
- Whisk together the spelt flour and baking soda. Add in ground poppy seeds, finely grated lemon rind and salt. Mix well.
- Add the flour mixture into the creamed butter. Stir to combine. Roll level tablespoons of mixture into balls. Place balls, inch apart, on the prepared trays. Use the bottom of a clean drinking glass to gently flatten each cookie ball to 1cm thick.
- Bake in the preheated oven, swapping trays halfway, for 12-14 minutes or until golden. Cool on trays for 5 minutes. Transfer to a wire rack to cool completely.
- Place the chopped white chocolate in a heavy saucepan over very low heat, stirring constantly till the chocolate begins to melt. Immediately remove the pan from the heat and stir the chocolate until it is smooth. Dip half of each cookie into melted white chocolate, allowing excess to drip off. If desired, sprinkle some lemon zest over. Place cookies on parchment paper until chocolate is set.
