How to Make Real Lemon Cookies
- Preheat oven to 350. Line your baking sheet(s) with parchment paper.
- Stir together your dried ingredients and put aside. Cream butter and sugar together. Add eggs, mix until blended. Add lemon juice and zest, mix until blended. Gradually add the flour mixture until everything is well blended. Use a small cookie scoop (or rounded spoonful) and drop onto your prepared cookie sheets. Bake for 12-15 minutes until the edges are firm.
- Optional: If you like to glaze your cookies, make your favorite glaze and drizzle over the cookies, or dust them with powdered sugar if you want to make them extra pretty!
