These cake-like lemon scented and lemon flavored cookies are easy to make and delicious to eat.
- 8 tablespoons unsalted butter, at room temperature
- 3/4 cup granulated sugar
- 1 teaspoon lemon zest
- 1 tablespoon lemon juice
- 1 egg
- 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
- 1 1/2 cups all purpose flour
- 1/4 teaspoon each salt, baking powder and baking soda
- 1/2 cup confectioners’ sugar
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
Cream butter and sugar in the bowl of a stand mixer until light and fluffy.
Add lemon zest, juice, egg and vanilla and mix until incorporated.
Add flour, salt, baking powder and baking soda and mix until no flour can be seen in dough. Scrape down the sides and give the dough a good stir. Chill in the refrigerator for 20 minutes. Place the confectioners’ sugar onto a plate. After 20 minutes, scoop the dough out using a teaspoon and roll into balls.
Coat the balls in the confectioners’ sugar and place onto cookie sheets. Bake for 10-11 minutes. Let the cookies cool on the cookie sheet for a couple minutes before transferring to a wire rack. Enjoy :)
