These buttery sugar cookies filled with sweet-tart lemon curd were inspired by our love of lemon, our appreciation for the classic thumbprint and the ever-present need for easy cookies. With all that in mind, the Betty Crocker™ Test Kitchens came up with this recipe full of time-saving hacks. It starts with an extra-citrusy dough made by adding lemon zest to Betty Crocker™ sugar cookie mix. The dough then gets rolled into balls, dipped in coarse sparking sugar and indented with the end of a wooden spoon, making a perfect divot for adding the lemon curd. From dough to oven, this recipe takes 25 minutes, so it’s easy enough to prep while dinner’s in the oven. When it’s time to fill your cookies, a pastry bag fashioned from a resealable plastic bag and store-bought lemon curd makes it extra efficient. Before you know it, you’ll have 50 bright and beautiful cookies perfect for just about any occasion.
