OK, I seem to be obsessed with Lemons lately, and these sugar cookies are no exception, with their lemony goodness this is one cookie I can’t say no to.
1 cup butter, unsalted, softened | 1 ½ cups granulated sugar | 1 whole egg | ½ teaspoon vanilla extract | 2 tablespoons lemon juice | 1 tablespoon lemon zest, or ½ teaspoon powdered lemon zest | 2 ¾ cups all-purpose flour | 1 teaspoon baking soda | ½ teaspoon baking powder | ½ teaspoon salt | ½ cup granulated sugar, for rolling
Preheat the oven to 350F. In the bowl of a mixer blend together the butter and sugar on low speed until at least mostly blended then for about 1 minute on medium speed until fluffy, scrape bowl.
Add the egg, vanilla extract, and lemon juice. Blend on low speed until completely mixed, scrape bowl.
Add the lemon zest, flour, baking soda, baking powder, and salt. Mix on low speed until completely blended.
Scoop about 1 ½ tablespoons at a time of dough, roll into balls, then roll in granulated sugar. Place about 2” apart on a baking sheet (12 to a standard cookie sheet). Bake for 10-12 minutes or until lightly browned on the edges and just set in the middle. Cool on pan for 1-2 minutes then remove to a cooling rack to cool completely.
