Lemon Olive Oil Cookies

Dec 09, 2023

These Lemon Olive Oil Cookies are lemony, simple, delicious - and butter free!  We use our Meyer Lemon Fused Extra Virgin Olive Oil for extra lemony kick, but you could use an unflavored olive oil if you prefer. Swap out the lemon for orange or lime for another delicious variation.

  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice
  • 2 teaspoons Maldon Sea Salt for sprinkling


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees
