Lemon Cookies


This recipe may be the best cookie recipe I've ever used!  As with all cookies, they taste the best right out of the oven.  But I was surprised how moist and fluffy they still tasted a week later.  Lemon cookies are the perfect springtime cookie.
1/2 cup butter, melted
1 cup sugar
1/2 tsp vanilla extract
1 egg
1 tsp lemon zest
1 tbs lemon juice
1/4 tsp salt
1/4 tsp baking powder
1/8 tsp baking soda
1 and 1/2 cups flour
1/2 cup powdered sugar (optional)

- In a large bowl, mix butter and sugar. 
- Whip in vanilla extract, egg, lemon zest, and lemon juice.
- Mix in the salt, baking powder, baking soda, and flour.
- Preheat oven to 350 degrees and lightly grease a baking pan.
- Roll dough into balls (optional: roll each ball in powdered sugar) and place onto baking pan.
- Bake for 9 to 11 minutes (or until bottoms begin to brown).
