Lemon Crinkle Cookies

I tried a new recipe today for dessert.  I found this on Tasty Kitchen’s website.  These turned out very good.  I think I will add more lemon juice next time.

Lemon Crinkle Cookies

1/2 cup butter, softened

1 cup white sugar

1/2 teaspoon vanilla

1 egg

1 teaspoon lemon zest

1 Tablespoon fresh lemon juice

1 1/2 cups flour (I used whole wheat)

1/4 teaspoon salt

1/4 teaspoon baking powder

1/8 teaspoon baking soda

1/2 cup powdered sugar

Preheat over to 350º.  Lightly grease your cookie sheet with cooking spray.

In a bowl, cream the butter and sugar together until light and fluffy.  Beat in vanilla, egg, lemon juice, and lemon zest.  Stir in dry ingredients and mix.

Put the powdered sugar on a plate and roll teaspoons of dough into a ball and then roll in the powdered sugar.  Place on baking sheet.  Bake for 9 – 11 minutes or until cookies begin to barely brown.  Remove from oven and transfer cookies to a cooling rack.
