A soft sugar cookie with a burst of lemon.
Cream butter in a bowl with a mixer
Add sugar and cream together
Add lemon zest, lemon juice and vanilla. Mix until combined
Add eggs and combine
Add flour, salt and baking soda. Combine
Use a scoop or a spoon to create balls of dough. Place on a lined baking sheet with a silicone mat or parchment paper. You may also lightly spray cookie sheet instead of lining baking sheet.
Bake in a preheated 375 degree oven for 10-12 minutes.
Allow cookies to cool slightly (1-2 min) and then remove from baking sheet and place on a cooling rack.
If cookie dough is very soft, cover and place in refrigerator for 15-30 minutes before baking.
