Stacia's Story

I 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


2 3/4 c
all purpose flour
1 tsp
baking soda
1/2 tsp
baking powder
1/2 tsp
1 c
butter, softened
Find more recipes at
1 1/2 c
sugar, white
1/2 tsp
vanilla extract
zest from one large lemon
4 Tbsp
fresh lemon juice
1/2 c

Directions Step-By-Step

Preheat oven to 350. Line cookie sheet(s) with parchment paper
In 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.

    love this recipe, I have a customer who is always looking for a new lemon dessert, and she loved these.. I added a tsp of lemon extract to make them "pucker" and it was a big hit, thank you for sharing. :)

    I featured "lemon" for my business dessert of the month, and 3 of my customers ordered these. My feedback on the scorecards I make up, were all 10's.
