1/2 cup butter, softened
1 cup sugar
1/2 tsp vanilla extract
1 tsp lemon zest
1 Tbsp lemon juice
1/4 tsp salt
1/4 tsp baking powder
1/8 tsp baking soda
1 1/2 cup flour
1/2 cup powdered sugar
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F & line your cookie sheets with parchment paper.
Combine dry ingredients, except the powdered sugar, and set aside.
Cream sugar and butter until fluffy. Add egg, vanilla, zest and juice; mix until ingredients are incorporated. Slowly stir in flour.
Either using a small spoon or a teaspoon scoop out dough and gently roll into balls, dip each in the powdered sugar to coat. Place on cookie sheet and bake 13 minutes. Be sure to watch closely towards the end of baking since all ovens bake differently.
Cool for 2 minutes on cookie sheet before transferring to a cooling rack. Store in a airtight container.
