Ingredients

Number of serving: 12
2 1/4 cups sugar

4 lemons, for juicing and zesting

3 cups flour

1 tsp baking powder

1 tsp salt

2 sticks unsalted butter, chilled

3 egg yolks

3 tsp vanilla

1 libra confectioners sugar

Yellow food coloring

Yellow sprinkles

Preparation

  • Zest 3 lemons and place in large bowl. Add sugar and mix. Reserve 1/4 cup of mixture to sprinkle on cookies. Set the rest aside.
  • Chop chilled butter into 1-inch cubes. In a separate bowl, mix flour, baking powder and salt. Add chopped butter and mix with electric mixer.
  • There will be small lumps of butter, and that is okay. That is good. In another smaller bowl, juice the 3 lemons you have already zested. Add egg yolks and 2 tsp vanilla to lemon juice and stir.
  • Now time to combine everything. Pour sugar/zest mixture into flour/butter bowl and briefly stir. Then, using electric mixer, slowly add wet ingredients to dry and mix until dough forms.
  • Cover dough and refrigerate for 30 minutes or until well chilled. Preheat oven to 350. Once dough is chilled, remove and place spoonfuls on greased or parchment lined baking sheets. Sprinkle with reserved lemon sugar. Bake for 13-15 minutes .
  • While cookies are baking, make icing. Juice remaining lemon into bowl of confectioners sugar. Add vanilla and whisk. If still too dry, add a small amount of water or milk. Add drop of yellow food coloring and stir.
