This is my go-to recipe for lemon sugar cookies. I have made it several times just as listed, and it is delicious! These cookies are so beautiful, and a great for stocking stuffers!


Lemon Sugar Cookies

Prep Time 20 minutes
Cook Time 10 minutes
Total Time 30 minutes

Ingredients
Cookie Dough
  • 3/4 cup butter, softened
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 1/2 tsp lemon juice
  • 1 Tbsp lemon zest
  • 2 1/2 cups all purpose flour
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp salt

Lemon Frosting
  • 1/2 cup butter, softened
  • 4 cups powdered sugar
  • 1 dash salt
  • 1 Tbsp lemon zest
  • 2 Tbsp fresh lemon juice
  • 1-2 Tbsp milk, if needed


Instructions
  1. Cream butter and sugar in a large mixing bowl. Beat in eggs, lemon juice, and lemon zest till well combined.
  2. Stir in flour, baking powder, and salt.
  3. Roll dough into tablespoon sized balls and place on lightly greased cookie sheets. Flatten with a glass dipped in sugar.
  4. Bake at 350° for 9-10 minutes, or till barely light brown on the bottom. Let sit 3-4 minutes on pan, then remove to cooling racks.
  5. Cool cookies completely, then frost. I piped frosting on with a 1M star tip.

Frosting:
  1. Beat together butter, powdered sugar, salt, lemon zest, and lemon juice in a mixing bowl till creamy, adding milk if needed. If you are piping the frosting, it needs to be thick. If you are just spreading it on, you can add more liquid.
