How to Make Lemon Crinkle Cookies

Step-by-Step

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
    Greast light colored baking sheet with non-stick cooking spray and set aside.
  2. 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 -- EXCEPT FOR POWDERED SUGAR -- slowly until just combined. Scrape side of bowl and mix again briefly.
  3. 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.
