These little powdered covered cookies will add just enough sweetness to any occasion. They are not to sweet and have a hint of lemon. If you want more lemon taste, just add more lemon juice.
It only takes about five minutes to mix them up and ten minutes to bake.
Sugar Lemon Cookies.
One Stick of Butter
1 Cup sugar
1/2 teaspoon vanilla
1 teaspoon lemon zest
2 Tablespoon lemon juice (best from lemon squeeze)
2 Cups self rising flour
Preheat oven to 350.
With a mixer, Cream butter & sugar in a large bowl , add egg, vanilla, lemon juice and zest.
With a fork, Stir in flour. (dough will be sticky so use a spoon and spoon a ball into powdered sugar, roll it around coating all sides. Place 2-3 inches apart on a greased baking pan. Bake for 10 minutes, Once cooled, coat with more powder sugar (optional).
That's all there is to it. They are simply light and sweet. Not sure if its the lemon I like best or the powder sugar. I love making things with powdered sugar. Maybe its just eating a cookie in general. Could you imagine how happy they world would be if everyone made cookies at the same time?
