Lemon Cookie Ingredients
2 cups all-purpose flour
2 tsp baking powder
½ tsp salt
10 Tbsp unsalted butter, softened
1 cup + 2 Tbsp granulated sugar
1 Tbsp lemon zest (about 2 lemons)
1 large egg
1 large egg yolk
1 ½ Tbsp fresh lemon juice
½ cup powdered sugar
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. In a mixing bowl whisk together flour, baking powder and salt.
In a separate bowl, whip together butter, sugar and lemon zest until pale and fluffy. Mix in egg then blend in egg yolk. Add lemon juice, lemon extract, vanilla extract and mix until combined. With mixer set on low speed, slowly add in dry ingredients and mix just until combined.
Pour powdered sugar into a small bowl. Scoop dough out about 1 ½ Tbsp at a time and shape into a ball, then drop in powdered sugar and roll to evenly coat. Transfer to a parchment paper or Silpat lined baking sheet. Repeat with remaining dough and space cookies 2 inches apart on baking sheet. Bake 10-13 minutes. Spoon glaze onto the top of the cookies while they cool on baking sheet several minutes then transfer to wire rack.
1 cup powdered sugar
Zest of 1 orange
1 ½ tsp cream (butter can also be used)
