  • Bake the cookies in the oven for 11 minutes, then let them cool down on the baking sheet for 10-15 minutes before transferring to a cooling rack to cool down fully.
  • Once fully cooled down, top with a generous amount of lemon curd, spread it all around, dust some powdered sugar on top and enjoy
