How to Make My FAV Lemon Cookies

Step-by-Step

  1. Recommended from experience: Assemble your ingredients first!
  2. Mix flour, confec. sugar, salt and lemon zest until combined.
  3. Mix in butter.
  4. Add egg yolks and lemon juice; mix until dough is formed.
  5. Divide dough in half and form each half into a log (1-1/2 " wide). Wrap in plastic and freeze until firm, 2 hours or more. (Will keep ok in freezer up to a month.)

  7. Bake until cookies are golden brown around the edges, 12 to 15 minutes. Transfer cookies to wire racks to cool.
