Ingredients

  • 8

    oz. unsalted butter, at room temperature

  • 2/3

    cup confectioners' sugar

  • 2 1/2

    teaspoons grated lemon zest

  • 2

    teaspoons lemon juice

  • Pinch salt

  • 2 2/3

    cups all-purpose flour

  • For Rolling:

  • 1

    cup confectioners' sugar

Directions

Heat the oven to 325 degrees F. Beat the butter and sugar together with a wooden spoon or a mixer until creamy. Add the lemon zest, lemon juice, and salt; mix until combined. Add the flour; mix until just blended. Shape the dough into 1-inch balls and set them 1 inch apart on ungreased or parchment-lined baking sheets(or freeze them on a baking sheet, as shown above). Bake until the cookies are light golden and give slightly when pressed, 18 to 20 min. Let the cookies cool slightly on the baking sheet; while still warm, roll them in confectioners' sugar. Transfer to a rack to cool completely.
