The lemon curd in these cookies taste similar to Lemon Drops. Do you remember those lemon shaped candies? They are so delicious, and give you that little punch of sour right behind your ear. You know what I mean, when it’s so sour it makes you twinge a little. But so delicious you can’t stop eating them!

Lemon Drop Cookies

These cookies start with a basic butter cookie. A simple mixture of butter, flour, an egg yolk, vanilla, and salt. Instead of sugar, I used Truvia Baking Blend, it’s a sugar substitute blend of zero-calorie Truvia natural sweetener and sugar then packaged in a product thatโ€™s designed for easy, at-home baking. It also can be substituted for sugar in any recipe by simply using half as much Truvia Baking Blend as you would sugar.

The Homemade Lemon Curd has lemon juice and zest from 2 lemons, eggs, butter, and again Truvia to cut back on the calories. This time though I used Truvia Spoonable Natural Sweetener.  The lemon curd does pack a punch of flavor, so you can certainly add a little more Truvia to suit your taste.

The mixture is cooked on the stove and comes together in about 10 minutes. The key to know when it’s done is when the curd sticks to the back of the spoon. It should be thick, but not too thick.
