Have you ever seen a picture of a cookie that you could immediately taste just by looking at it? This is that. Yes, it tastes like you think it will. Melts in your mouth and gives you that punch of tartness! YUM!

1/2 cup salted butter, softened
1 package (8 oz) cream cheese, softened
1 1/2 tsp fresh lemon zest
1 1/2 cups sugar
1 large egg, room temperature
1 tsp vanilla extract
2 tsp fresh lemon juice
2 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
1 cup confectioners sugar (divided)
3 tsp baking powder


  • Preheat oven to 350°F
  • In a large bowl beat butter, cream cheese, lemon zest, and sugar until blended
  • Add in egg, vanilla, and lemon juice
  • Add in flour, baking powder, and 1/2 cup confectioners sugar
  • With the mixer on low, gradually beat into creamed mixture
  • Using a cookie scoop, scoop dough and then roll in the remaining 1/2 cup of confectioners sugar

  • Bake until they no longer appear wet on top, 8-11 minutes
