 Ingredients List

  • 1/2 C butter , softened
  • 1 C granulated sugar
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 whole egg
  • 1 tsp lemon zest
  • 1 tbsp fresh lemon juice
  • 2 drops lemon extract (optional)
  • 2 drops yellow food grade coloring (optional)
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1/4 tsp baking powder
  • 1/8 tsp baking soda
  • 1 1/2 C all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 C powdered sugar


Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Spray baking sheets with non-stick cooking spray or line with parchment paper and set aside. In a large bowl, cream butter and sugar together until light and fluffy. Whip in vanilla, egg, lemon zest, juice, lemon extract, and yellow food coloring (if desired). Scrape the sides of the mixing bowl and mix again. In a medium bowl, combine the salt, baking powder, baking soda and flour. Slowly add the flour mixture to the sugar/butter mixture and mix on low until just combined. Pour powdered sugar onto a large plate. Roll a heaping teaspoon of dough into a ball, roll in powdered sugar and place on prepared baking sheet.
Bake for 9-11 minutes or until bottoms begin to barely brown and cookies puff up. Cool cookies on the cookie sheets about 3 minutes before transferring to cooling rack.
