This is a recipe for Lemon Crunch Cookies. The crunch comes from the sugar coating outside of the dough balls. Overall it has a very nice lemon freshness but has the sweetness you crave from a cookie. Very easy to make and simple.
- 2 3/4 cups all-purpose flour
- 1 teaspoon baking soda
- 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 1 cup butter, softened
- 1 1/2 cups white sugar
- 1 egg
- 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
- 2 tbsp lemon zest, finely minced
- 4-6 tbsp fresh lemon juice
- 1/2 cup sugar for rolling cookies
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Line cookie sheets with parchment paper.
In a small bowl, stir together flour, baking soda, baking powder and salt. Set aside.
Using a mixer, beat together the butter and sugar until smooth and very fluffy.
Beat in egg, vanilla extract, lemon juice and lemon zest.
Gradually blend in the dry ingredients.
Roll rounded teaspoonfuls of dough into balls, and roll in sugar. Place on lined cookie sheets about 1 1/2 inches apart.
Bake 10-15 minutes in the preheated oven, or until lightly browned.
Let stand on cookie sheet two minutes before removing to cool on wire racks. Enjoy!
