Stacia's StoryI just posted another lemon cookie recipe too. Here is Lemon Cookie #2. I had been searching JAP for a simple lemon cookie not made with a cake mix and had given up after five pages. I went and dug through recipes I'd clipped out or written down for the last recipe I posted. This one is from MyBakingAddiction.com.
2 3/4 c
all purpose flour
1 1/2 c
zest from one large lemon
fresh lemon juice
1Preheat oven to 350. Line cookie sheet(s) with parchment paper
2In a small bowl, whisk together flour, baking soda, baking powder, and salt.
In a larger bowl, beat together butter and sugar until light and fluffy. Beat in egg, vanilla, zest, and juice.
Add in dry ingredients, mixing until just combined.
Roll rounded spoonfuls of dough into balls and roll in sugar.
Place on cookies sheets, 1-2 inches apart.
Bake for 8-10 minutes. Let cool for two minutes on cookie sheet before moving them to wire racks.
