Updated: Apr 18

These lemon sugar cookies are sure to be a big hit!

A photo of 3 lemony sugar cookies stacked upon one another and covered with sparkly sugar.


1 cup cold butter cut into cubes

2 cups sugar

2 eggs

1 1/2 tbsp. fresh lemon juice

1 tbsp. lemon zest

3 cups flour

1 1/4 tsp. baking soda

1/2 tsp. salt

(Note: For an extra tart cookie use more lemon zest

I also added 3 tbsp. lemon juice powder to the flour mixture.)

You may add 1 to 2 drops of yellow food coloring for color.


Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

Cream the butter and sugar until light and fluffy in a large mixing bowl.

Add the eggs, vanilla, lemon juice, and lemon zest - stir to combine.

Stir in flour, baking powder, baking soda, and salt and mix just until combined.

Drop dough onto a parchment-lined baking sheet.

Bake for 9 to 11 minutes. Sprinkle with sugar or white sparkling sugar.

but is still sweet and sparkly, but you feel a little less guilty about all the sugar.)
