A wonderful chewy lemony cookie.


  • 1 1/2 cups flour
  • 1/4 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1/2 cup butter at room temperature
  • 1 egg
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • Juice and zest of one lemon
  • Powdered Sugar


  1. Combine dry ingredients and set aside.
  2. Cream butter and sugar.
  3. Add egg, lemon juice, zest, and vanilla, and mix to combine.
  4. Add in the dry ingredients and mix well.
  5. Refrigerate for one hour.
  6. Roll balls (dough will be sticky), roll in powdered sugar and bake on cookie sheets lined with parchment paper. Bake for 12-15 minutes in a 350º oven. Let cool for a minute or two before transferring to a cooling rack.



The lemon essential oil or extract is optional, but I love to add lemon essential oil to make the lemon really stand out!
