Lemon Butter Cookies Recipe

By
Real Estate Broker/Owner with Hamm Homes
Prep Time: 20 mins   Yields: 24

 Still in the oven for my open house today

 

Ingredients:

  • 2 1/4 c. all-purpose flour
  • 1 1/4 tsp. baking powder
  • 3/4 tsp. kosher salt
  • 10 tbsp. butter, softened
  • 1 (8-oz.) block cream cheese, softened
  • 1 1/4 c. granulated sugar
  • 2 large eggs
  • 2 tsp. finely grated lemon zest
  • 1/4 c. fresh lemon juice
  • 1 tsp. pure vanilla extract
  • 10 drops yellow food coloring
  • 3/4 c. powdered sugar

 

Directions:

  1. In a medium bowl, whisk flour, baking powder, and salt.
  2. In a large bowl using a hand mixer, beat butter and cream cheese with sugar until light and fluffy, about 2 minutes. Beat in eggs, lemon zest and juice, vanilla, and food coloring. Beat in dry ingredients until just combined. Cover bowl with plastic and refrigerate until firm, at least 2 hours and up to overnight.
  3. Preheat oven to 325° and line a baking sheet with parchment paper. Roll dough into 2" balls, then roll in powdered sugar. Let sit 2 minutes until sugar is absorbed, then reroll in powdered sugar (do not shake off excess). Place about 2" apart on prepared baking sheet and bake until cookies crackle and are set but still slightly soft in the center, 18 to 20 minutes. Transfer to a cooling rack and let cool completely.

Morning Will.

Just like green eggs and ham, I do love lemon cookies.  Like Tony would say "They're Great".
