    Table of Contents

    Ingredients:

    • 1 cup unsalted butter, softened
    • 1 cup granulated sugar
    • 2 large eggs
    • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
    • 2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
    • 2 teaspoons lemon zest
    • 2 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
    • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
    • 1/2 teaspoon cream of tartar
    • 1/4 teaspoon salt
    • 1/2 cup powdered sugar (for rolling)

    Instructions:

    Preheat the Oven:

    Preheat your oven to 350°F (175°C) and line a baking sheet with parchment paper.

    Cream Butter and Sugar:

    In a large bowl, cream together the softened butter and granulated sugar until light and fluffy.

    Add Wet Ingredients:

    Beat in the eggs, one at a time, ensuring each is fully incorporated before adding the next. Add the vanilla extract, fresh lemon juice, and lemon zest. Mix until well combined.

    Combine Dry Ingredients:

    In a separate bowl, whisk together the all-purpose flour, baking soda, cream of tartar, and salt.

    Combine Wet and Dry Ingredients:

    Gradually add the dry ingredients to the wet ingredients, mixing until a soft dough forms.

    Chill the Dough:

    Cover the dough and chill it in the refrigerator for at least 1 hour. This will make it easier to handle and enhance the flavors.

    Shape Cookies:

    Scoop out tablespoon-sized portions of dough and roll them into balls. Roll each ball in powdered sugar to coat evenly.

    Bake:

    Place the coated cookie balls on the prepared baking sheet, spacing them about 2 inches apart. Bake in the preheated oven for 10-12 minutes or until the edges are set and lightly golden.

    Cool:

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

    Enjoy:

    Once the cookies are completely cooled, serve and enjoy your delightful Lemon Cooler Cookies!

    These cookies have a wonderful balance of sweetness and tartness, making them a perfect treat for any occasion.
