Day 76: Lemon Drop Cookies

There is something about a lemon cookie that makes me think of summer. Maybe it was eating them by the box full while at dance camp while I was in high school? Sweet and tangy, lemon cookies are always a favorite.

It has been a few weeks since I linked up with Deb at Focused on the Magic of Disney. This weeks theme, "C". In my world "C" stands for COOKIE!

While taking pictures of the Lemon Drop Cookies, Mickey made a special appearance.

This is a simple recipe, sure to please. I found it helpful to dip the cookies in lemon juice before covering with powdered sugar. Start with 1/2 tsp and add more as needed.

Lemon Drop Cookies

  • 1 cup of powdered sugar
  • 1/2 stick of butter
  • 1 egg
  • 2 tsp of lemon juice
  • 1 1/4 cup flour
  • 1/2 tsp baking soda
  • 1/4 tsp salt (I use Kosher)
  • Zest of one lemon
  • 1/2 cup powdered sugar
  • Lemon zest
  • 1 tsp lemon juice (use more as needed)
    1. Cream butter and powdered sugar
    2. Add egg and lemon juice
    3. Slowly stir in flour, baking soda and salt
    4. Refrigerate for 30 minutes
    5. Preheat oven to 325 degrees
    6. Roll dough into a pall and place on the cookie sheet
    7. Bake for 10-12 minutes.
    8. Cool cookies on cookie sheet for 1 minute remove to cooling rack
    9. While cookies are still on the cookie sheet mix together powdered sugar and lemon zest.
    10. Before cookies are completely cooled cookie in lemon juice then cover in powdered sugar.

    Cool and enjoy!
