Ingredients

  • 2 3/4

    cups all-purpose flour

  • 1

    teaspoon baking soda

  • 1/2

    teaspoon baking powder

  • 1/2

    teaspoon salt

  • Zest of 2 large lemons

  • 1 1/2

    cups granulated sugar

  • 1

    cup unsalted butter, room temperature

  • 1

    large egg

  • 1/2

    teaspoon vanilla extract

  • 2

    tablespoons fresh lemon juice

  • 1/2

    cup granulated sugar for rolling cookies

Directions

Preheat oven to 350°F. Line baking sheets with parchment paper or silicone baking mats. In a small bowl, whisk together flour, baking soda, baking powder, & salt. Using a mixer, beat together butter & sugar until smooth and creamy. Add lemon zest, egg, vanilla extract, & lemon juice. Mix until combined. Gradually blend in the dry ingredients. Roll rounded tablespoons of dough into balls (or use a cookies scoop) & roll in sugar. Place on prepared baking sheets, about 1 ½ inches apart. Bake 8 to 10 minutes or until cookies are slightly brown around the edges & set. Let cookies sit on the baking sheets for two minutes before transferring to a cooling rack. Tip: To keep cookies soft, store them with a slice of bread in an air tight container
