Before starting to prepare the lemon cookie dough I preheated the oven to 350F and lined a cookie sheet with parchment paper.

Then I prepared the lemon zest and lemon juice.  I used two lemons for the zest but only used one lemon for the juice.

Once my lemon ingredients were ready I dumped brown sugar, Golden Flavoured Crisco Shortening and granulated sugar into a large mixing bowl.

Then I used my electric hand mixer to combine the ingredients.

Next I cracked one large egg into the dough.  At this time I also added the lemon juice.

I used the electric hand mixer again to blend until the dough was creamy.

Then I measured in some Bob’s Red Mill Gluten Free All Purpose Flour Blend, salt, baking soda and xanthan gum.

I beat these ingredients into the cookie dough with the electric hand mixer.

Once the ingredients were well incorporated I added the lemon zest and beat one final time with the hand mixer.  Just until the zest was spread out in the cookie dough.

When the batter was ready I used a scoop (1 tbsp) to drop balls of cookie dough onto the prepared baking sheet.

Then I placed the baking sheet in a preheated 350F for 9-11 minutes or until the cookies were just turning golden brown around the edges.

After removing the cookies from the oven I allowed them to cool on the pan for two minutes.

Then I transferred them to a cooling rack.

Gluten Free Lemon Cookies are a tasty snack that can be enjoyed alone or with your favourite beverage.  Their light lemon flavour and chewy consistency makes it hard to eat just one!
