Lemon Crinkle Cookies Are A Bite Of Sunshine

Step 1: Gather Your Ingredient – 2 cups all-purpose flour – 2 teaspoons baking powder – 1/2 teaspoon salt – 1/2 cup unsalted butter, softened

– 1 cup granulated sugar – 2 large egg – Zest of 2 lemon – Juice of 1 lemon (about 2-3 tablespoons) – 1 teaspoon vanilla extract – 1/2 cup powdered sugar (for rolling)

Step 2: Preheat the Oven and Prepare Baking Sheet 1. Preheat your oven to 350°F (175°C). Line baking sheets with parchment paper or silicone baking mats.

Step 3: Mix Dry Ingredient 1. In a medium bowl, whisk together the flour, baking powder, and salt. Set aside.

Step 4: Cream Butter and Sugar 1. In a large mixing bowl, cream together the softened butter and granulated sugar until light and fluffy.

Step 5: Add Wet Ingredient 1. Beat in the eggs, one at a time, until well combined. 2. Mix in the lemon zest, lemon juice, and vanilla extract until incorporated.

Step 6: Combine Wet and Dry Ingredients, and Roll 1. Gradually add the dry ingredients to the wet ingredients, mixing until a smooth dough forms. 2. Place the powdered sugar in a shallow bowl. Roll tablespoon-sized portions of dough into balls, then roll each ball in the powdered sugar until fully coated.

1. Place the coated dough balls onto the prepared baking sheets, spacing them about 2 inches apart. 2. Bake the cookies for 10-12 minutes, or until the edges are set and the tops are cracked.

Allow the cookies to cool on the baking sheets for a few minutes before transferring them to wire racks to cool completely.
