Lemon Curd Shortbread Cookies

Updated: Apr 6, 2022


  • 2 ¼ cups all-purpose flour

  • 1 teaspoon lemon zest - packed

  • 1 cup salted butter - room temperature

  • 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract

  • 1 cup powdered sugar

  • ½ cup Lemon Curd

  • turbinado sugar - for sprinkling


  1. Place powdered sugar and lemon zest in a mixing bowl and press with a wooden spoon to release lemon oils.

  2. Add softened butter and vanilla, cream together about 3-5 minutes, or until mixture is light and fluffy.

  3. Gradually add flour and mix just until dough comes together.

  4. Scoop out one-inch dough balls and place 2 inches apart on a large baking sheet lined with parchment paper or a silicone liner. Chill any extra dough for the next batch.

  5. Use your thumb, the end of a wooden spoon, or a wine cork to press an indentation into the middle of each cookie. Fill each indent with about ½ to 1 teaspoon chilled lemon curd. If desired, sprinkle each cookie with raw sugar.

  6. Preheat oven to 375°F. Place baking sheet in freezer to chill for 10-15 minutes while the oven preheats.

  7. Bake in preheated oven for 12-14 minutes, or until bottoms of cookies are golden brown. Let cool on pan for 10 minutes, then transfer to a wire rack to cool completely.
