Lemon Cookies

* ½ cups butter, softened
* 1 cup granulated sugar
* ½ teaspoons vanilla extract
* 1 egg
* 1 tsp lemon zest
* 1 tbsp fresh lemon juice
* ¼ tsp salt
* ¼ tsp baking powder
* ⅛ tsp baking soda
* 1-½ cup all-purpose flour
* ¼ cups powdered sugar

1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Grease light colored baking sheets with non-stick cooking spray and set aside, or use parchment paper
2. In a large bowl, cream butter and sugar together until light and fluffy. Add in vanilla, egg, lemon zest, and juice. Scrape sides and mix again.
3. Stir in all dry ingredients slowly until just combined, excluding the powdered sugar. Scrape sides of bowl and mix again briefly.
4. Pour powdered sugar onto a large plate. Roll a heaping teaspoon of dough into a ball and roll in powdered sugar. Place on baking sheet and repeat with remaining dough.
5. Bake for 9-10 minutes or until bottoms begin to barely brown and cookies look matte.
6. Remove from oven and cool cookies about 3 minutes before transferring to cooling rack.

9 minutes was the perfect amount of time in my oven. These were lightly lemon tasting, but not overwhelming. Very tasty!
