Lemon Crinkle Cookies

  Found this cookie recipe on this lovely blog the other day.  Had a lemon in the fridge that was asking for me to make something out of her.....so I did.  Since winter seems to be sticking around here in Michigan...I thought I would bring some lemony sunshine inside.  I am desperate.  And by the way...if you like lemon.....you are gonna LOVE these! 

 Lemon Crinkle Cookies
Makes 2 dozen
 ½ C butter, softened
1 C sugar
½ tsp vanilla extract
1 whole egg
1 tsp lemon zest
1 Tbsp fresh lemon juice
¼ tsp salt
¼ tsp baking powder
⅛ tsp baking soda
1-½ C flour
½ C powdered sugar

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
In a large bowl, mix together the butter and sugar together until light and fluffy 3-5 minutes. Add in the vanilla, egg, lemon zest, and lemon juice. Add in flour, baking soda, baking powder and salt until just combined, excluding the powdered sugar. Pour powdered sugar onto a bowl. Form dough in a ball and roll in powdered sugar. Place on greased or parchment lined baking sheet. Bake for 9-11 minutes or until bottoms begin to barely brown Remove from oven and cool cookies about 3 minutes before transferring to cooling rack.

Yum Yum Yum Yum....Gobble Gobble Gobble....Yum Yum   :)

This is funny. I just made lemon bars and I don't like the way they turned out. I was thinking about making lemon cookies to replace them. However...I don't have a recipe! Now I do!!!
Thanks Shann....just what I needed.
