  5. 1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice
  6. ½ teaspoon vanilla extract

  8. 2½ cups all-purpose flour
  9. ¼ teaspoon salt
  10. Sifted confectioners’ sugar
Instructions
  1. In a medium bowl, combine butter, confectioners’ sugar, and granulated sugar. Beat at medium speed with a mixer until creamy. Add lemon zest, lemon juice, vanilla extract, and egg, beating until well combined.
  2. In a small bowl, combine flour and salt. Gradually add flour mixture to butter mixture, beating to combine. Cover, and refrigerate for 1 hour.
  3. Preheat oven to 350°. Line 2 baking sheets with parchment paper.
  4. Roll dough into 1-inch balls. Place dough 2 inches apart on prepared baking sheets. Using a flat-bottomed glass dipped in sugar, flatten dough to a ¼-inch thickness. Bake for 12 to 14 minutes or until lightly browned. Let cool on pans for 5 minutes.
