This year I decided to try out a new recipe I dug up online! This recipe is not only easy and requires very little ingredients but that taste great too. This recipe is going on my never-ending list of keeper recipes!
Lemon Crinkle Cookies
makes about 2-3 dozen
1/2 cup butter, softened
1 cup sugar
1/2 tsp vanilla extract
1 tsp lemon zest
1 TBS 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 350F & 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 scoop 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 9-11 minutes (I actually had to bake mine 13 minutes but I rather put the lower time amount on here just in case your oven bakes hotter...its always easier to add a few minutes)
Cool for 2 minutes on cookie sheet before transferring to a cooling rack. Store in a airtight container.
