Lemon Cookies

½ cups butter, softened
1 cup granulated sugar
½ teaspoons vanilla extract
1 whole egg
1 teaspoon lemon zest
1 Tablespoon fresh lemon juice
¼ teaspoons salt
¼ teaspoons baking powder
⅛ teaspoons baking soda
1-½ cup all-purpose flour
½ cups powdered sugar

Preheat the oven to 350 F. Prepare light colored cookie sheets with cooking spray. (If using dark colored cookie sheets decrease cooking time)

Prep: In a small bowl mix together the wet ingredients: vanilla, the egg, lemon zest, and lemon juice. In another small bowl mix together the dry ingredients (minus the powdered sugar): the salt, baking powder, baking soda, and flour.

To make: Cream together the butter and sugar. Next, whip in the wet ingredients. Stop the mixer and scrape down the sides. Then slowly mix in the dry ingredients (minus the powdered sugar). Once mixed again scrape down the sides of the bowl and mix again. Pour the confectioners sugar onto a small plate. Roll dough into a heaping teaspoon sized ball then roll the dough balls in the powdered sugar. Place onto cookie sheets. Bake for 9-11 minutes (mine were perfect at 10 minutes). Cookies are done when they are matte (not shiny) on top and lightly browned on the bottom.
