Lemongrass Snowball Cookies


I first spotted these about a year ago in Bon Appetit magazine as an advertisement from the "Real Butter" campaign. The picture was so beautiful, and I was intrigued by the use of lemongrass in a cookie. I was doubly intrigued that it was suggested as a Christmas cookie. I have always associated lemongrass with warm, sunny, tropical flavors.




Dried lemongrass is very inexpensive, and you won't need much. The small packet I had on hand cost .29 cents at the Asian market. The recipe also calls for white chocolate chips. They'll need to be chopped a little finer before going into the batter.


You'll also need coconut! How cute are these kitschy reindeer picks? I found them at Fancy Flours. I could spend all my time and money while browsing the online shop. I try to stay away. I TRY.

I liked these, in the end. They are definitely bright and lemony, with a slightly perfumed flavor. I suspect a step was missing from the original recipe, as the "snowballs" did not remain as round as I expected in the baking process. I would suggest after rolling these, chill them for an hour before baking.




I hope everyone had a great Thanksgiving! Mark and I drove to our little mountain-home town about 45 minutes away from where we live now. Of course B-dog was thrilled to ride along.

These mountains have bid me "welcome home" countless times, and it never gets old.


I made a new dish for Thanksgiving this year. Roasted carrots and parsnips with fresh herbs. I know this is a blog for all sweet things, but I could not resist posting such a vibrant dish.
