Mother’s Day is just a few short weeks away and if you are looking for something extra special to “Make and Bake” for Mom this is it!
This week I’m joined by my friend, the super talented Robert Mahar who will show us how to package these cookies up into a cute DIY Cookie Tube!

Easy Lemon Thyme Sugar Cookies in time for Mother’s Day!
1 cup (240 g) of unsalted butter
1 cup (200 g) sugar
1 ½ tsp (7.5 ml) lemon extract
Zest of 1 small lemon
2 tsp (10 ml) fresh thyme, minced
3 cups (360 g) flour
¾ tsp (3.75 ml) salt
¼ tsp (1.25 ml) baking powder
1 tbsp (15 ml) raw cane sugar or turbinado sugar
Beat together butter and sugar with an electric mixture until fluffy. Add egg, lemon extract, lemon zest and thyme. Beat to combine.
Whisk together the flour, salt and baking powder. Set aside.
Slowly add flour mixture to butter mixture in thirds, until well combined. Form dough into a ball, and flatten into a disc. Refrigerate for 2 hours.
Roll out dough on a well-floured surface to about ¼ “. Cut scalloped circles (3” in diameter) and transfer to a cookie sheet lined with parchment. Sprinkle each cookie with the raw sugar.
Bake for 12-13 mins until cookie is set. Remove from the oven and allow cookies to cool.
