The Pin Junkie: Lemon Sugar Cookies

Lemon Sugar Cookies

I found this recipe on Pinterest from Classy Clutter.   These cookies are sweet, lemony and they melt in your mouth.  There's no way you can just eat one!  Unless you have super human will power, you'll want to plan on sharing these cookies with a friend, neighbor, or anyone you can give them to.  Just get them out of your house as fast as you can so that you're not stuck eating the whole batch!  Not only are these cookies delicious, but they're very delicate and pretty too. 

After I mixed the dough, it was very soft so I chilled it for about 20 to 30 minutes to get it a bit more firm and easier to work with.

These cookies have such a high sugar content and could burn easily.  I lined my baking sheets with parchment paper to prevent the cookies from burning.

I also added a little more powdered sugar after baking the cookies.

Enjoy!
ngredients:
1/2 cups butter, softened
1 cup granulated sugar
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 egg
1 teaspoon lemon zest
2 Tablespoons fresh lemon juice
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon baking powder
1/8 teaspoon baking soda
1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
1/2 cup powdered sugar (for rolling cookie dough balls)
Directions:
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Grease light colored baking sheets with non stick spray and set aside OR line baking sheets with parchment paper.

In a large bowl, cream butter and sugar together until light and fluffy. Whip in vanilla, egg, lemon zest, and juice. Scrape sides and mix again. Stir in all dry ingredients slowly until just combined, excluding the powdered sugar. Scrape sides of bowl and mix again briefly. Pour powdered sugar onto a large plate. Roll a heaping teaspoon of dough into a ball and roll in powdered sugar. Place on baking sheet and repeat with remaining dough.

Bake for 9-11 minutes or until bottoms begin to barely brown and cookies look matte. Remove from oven and cool cookies about 3 minutes before transferring to cooling rack.
