Pomegranate and Lemon

My brain goes into overdrive when I think up new and exciting recipes. This Lemon Pomegranate Cookie took many forms before it became pomegranate and lemon. The truth is these lemon cookies became a pomegranate recipe because I had bought Pomegranate seeds to use in the cranberry sauce for Thanksgiving, I needed to use them up!

Pomegranate Recipe

Cranberry sauce inspired a Christmas cookie recipe? Yes! My mom wanted me to do something different with cranberry sauce, so I thought Pomegranate seeds. Well, in a conversation with her, I found out she doesn’t like Pomegranate. Ok then, so what to do with the seeds? That is how lemon cookies became a pomegranate recipe!

Lemon Cookie Recipe

I decided to google Pomegranate cookies. I saw many pomegranate recipes but nothing was jumping out at me. Then I saw an ad for lemon cookies. The light bulb went off in my head. Why not do a lemon cookie  drop cookie recipe. Lemon along with the pomegranate go well together.

 

Cooking Tip:

W

hen baking cookies, be sure your dough is thoroughly chilled when it goes on your baking pan. This will allow the leavening ingredients to work before the butter flattens out and your cookies lose their textural distinctions. – Source: Epicurious
