How to Make Lemon Sugar Cookies
1Preheat oven to 350°F. Line a cookie sheet with parchment.
2In a medium bowl, sift together flour, baking powder and salt.
3In a large bowl, cream together butter, sugar and lemon zest until light and fluffy. Beat in eggs, one at a time, and add vanilla extract.
4Gradually mix in the flour mixture at low speed. Scrape down sides as needed.
I like to chill the dough for about an hour. Although, it's not necessary.
5Place 2 or 3 tablespoons of sugar in a small bowl for rolling.
Shape into 1-inch balls, roll or just dab the tops with the sugar. Place on baking sheet.
6Bake for 8-10 minutes, until set. I usually bake for 8 min.
Cool on the pan for a minute, and then transfer them to cool on a wire rack.
