Have you ever heard of Pinterest? Oh. My. Addicting. Wow. I LOVE pinning :). There are so many fun things you find and can “bookmark” for later reference. The site is pretty much amazing and you should sign up for it. Or leave a comment and ask me for an “invite”… it’s by invitation only and I can get you in ;). If you are on we need to connect so I can see what cool things you are pinning. Anyway, that’s where I found this ah-ma-zing recipe. Seriously? I’m officially naming this the summer of all things lemon! Love. These cookies will not disappoint. On top of the fact that they are so soft and melty and wonderful they are a cinch to throw together. We buy lemons at Costco and almost always have them on hand. I will be making these again. Soon.

½ c butter, softened
1 c granulated sugar
½ tsp vanilla extract
1 whole egg
1 tsp lemon zest
1 tbsp fresh lemon juice
¼ tsp salt
¼ tsp baking powder
⅛ tsp baking soda
1-½ c all-purpose flour
½ c powdered sugar

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Grease light colored baking sheets with non stick cooking spray and set aside. In a large bowl, cream butter and sugar together until light and fluffy. Whip in vanilla, egg, lemon zest and juice. Scrape sides and mix again. Stir in all dry ingredients slowly until just combined, excluding the powdered sugar. Scrape sides of bowl and mix again briefly. Pour powdered sugar onto a large plate. Roll a heaping teaspoon of dough into a ball and roll in powdered sugar. Place on baking sheet and repeat with remaining dough. Bake for 9-11 minutes or until bottoms begin to barely brown and cookies look matte {not melty or shiny}. Remove from oven and cool cookies about 3 minutes before transferring to cooling rack. If using a non stick darker baking tray, reduce baking time by about 2 minutes.
