  • Author: Julie
  • Yield: 24 1x

Scale

Ingredients

  • 2 cups plus 2 tablespoons all purpose flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 tablespoon cornstarch
  • 3/4 cup butter softened
  • 1 1/4 cup sugar
  • 1 egg plus 1 egg yolk
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/4 teaspoon butter flavoring (sold by other flavor extracts)
  • 2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
  • zest of one lemon
  • sparkling sugar

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  2. In a medium bowl, whisk together flour, baking powder, baking soda, salt and cornstarch and set aside.
  3. In the bowl of an electric mixer, cream together butter and sugar on medium speed.
  4. Add egg and egg yolk and mix until well incorporated. Add vanilla extract, butter flavoring, lemon juice, and zest and mix.
  5. Turn speed to low and gradually add the dry ingredients to the wet ingredients.
  6. I used my 1 1/2 tablespoon size scoop to make 24 dough balls. Dip the top of each dough ball in sparkling sugar and placed them 9 at a time on Silpat lined baking sheet. These cookies will spread when baking.
  7. Bake for 11-13 minutes. Cool on a cooling rack.
