Do Lemon and Chocolate Taste Good Together?

Back before MoFo 2011 started a question was asked. Well, I say the answer is yes, and here's some proof!



Makes 16 biscuits

1/2 cup of vegan sunflower margarine

1/2 cup of icing sugar

Couple of drops of vanilla extract

1 teaspoon of lemon extract

1 cup + 2 tablespoons of plain flour

1/8 teaspoons bicarbonate of soda
1/8 teaspoon of salt

Zest of an unwaxed lemon

½ cup of chocolate chips

Preheat the oven to 350f/ 180C.

Grease and line a baking tray with greaseproof paper.

Beat the icing sugar and margarine until creamy. Add the vanilla extract, lemon extract and lemon zest and stir to combine.In a separate bowl, sift together the flour and bicarbonate of soda.

Fold this mixture into the margarine mix in two batches. When it starts to come together fold in the chocolate chips. Roll out on a floured board. cut out with star shaped cutters. Transfer to the baking tray and bake for 12-14 minutes until they start to turn golden.

Allow to cool on baking sheet for 5 minutes then transfer to a wire cooling rack.


  1. I totally agree, lemon and chocolate do work well and your star-shaped cookies are adorable!

  2. Yum! I bet these would be good with orange, too. I'm quite the fan of the orange & chocolate combination.

  3. Me too, I've already posted 2 choc and orange combinations this MoFo, think I'm a bit obsessed!

  4. These look fantastic, will definitely be trying them.

  5. Stars of lemony chocolateness! AWESOME! I never would have put lemon and chocolate together but I have no idea why. Clearly my brain has gone kaput.
