Lemon and basil are a great match in these chewy cookies. Another great example of how veggies can be used for sweet treats!

 

Ingredients

1 stick (4 ounces 1/2 cup) butter, at room temperature
, cut into cubes

2/3 cup granulated sugar

1 egg

1/2 tsp vanilla

1 tbsp fresh lemon juice

Zest from 1 lemon

Zest from 1/2 lime

2 tablespoons basil leaves, finely chopped

1 3/4 cup all-purpose flour

1/2 tsp baking soda

1/2 tsp salt

 

Directions

Preheat oven to 325°F.

Cream the butter until it changes color (pale), add the sugar and beat well.

Meanwhile, sift the flour; add the baking soda and salt.

Stir in the egg, lemon juice, vanilla, and lemon & lime zests. Beat until thoroughly mixed. Add the dry ingredients and mix. Fold in the basil.

Measure tablespoonfuls of dough; place on a large baking sheet. Bake until edges are brown, about 10 minutes for a soft yet a bit crispy cookie. Transfer to a wire rack; let cool.
