Spring is officially here and I am officially celebrating. Take that, winter!

Cookies seem like the appropriate treat to usher in a season of sunshine, flowers, and picnics. Especially if the cookies are as light and airy as spring makes us feel.

Today’s Soft Lemon Poppy Seed Cookies are my new favorite cookie….

I know, I know. I’ve said that before.

However, these pillowy little drops of sunshine are so tender and vibrant, you can’t help but love them!

How to Make Soft Lemon Poppy Seed Cookies

These drop-style cookies take very little effort to prepare, and retain their tender texture for days. They are a marvelous make-ahead for parties and weekend treats!

Just be sure not to over bake the Soft Lemon Poppy Seed Cookies. The centers may look a little under baked, yet the moment the edges are set and just barely showing color, take them out of the oven.

    Such a fun cookie! I’m always a fan of lemon and poppy seed together and this is a great way to deliver it.

    Could you half this recipe. Two of my mother’s favourite things are lemon and poppy seeds, but she is pre-diabetic so she’s trying to watch her sugar intake. If I could half this recipe, she wouldn’t be so mad at me for making them for her. lol

      Hi Mabel,

      Of course! However, I would probably make the whole batch and just freeze half the dough for later. :)

        Is it better to freeze dough and cook later, or cook batch and freeze cookies?

        Hi Carolyn,

        I prefer to freeze dough and bake the cookies when needed. That way, they are fresh!

    These sound delicious (I LOVE lemon), but alas, I’m not a fan at all of soft cookies. Any way to make them so they’re crisp (or at least not soft in the center)?

    Love the sound of these cookies!

    Love this recipe!! Lemon poppyseed anything is a favorite of mine.  A little bakery I used to work in as a kid had the best muffins, and I was lucky enough to get them right out of the oven!

    These look fantastic! I’m a huge fan of lemon desserts and baked goods. My peeps sometimes complain that I make things ‘too lemony’, as if such a thing were actually possible.

    I’ll be making these gluten-free……They sound great!! :-)
