Lemon Crinkles

The other day I was craving lemon and was planning on making these Lemon Sugar Cookies that I love. But then I saw this recipe on Pinterest and since I have a problem with turning down new recipes I decided to not make my favorite lemon cookies and try something new.

Boy am I glad I did! With the first bite I thought they were delicious but there wasn't anything super amazing about them. But by the time I realized I was on my 3rd cookie (they were small, okay? hahaha) I had decided they must be fantastic! They are addictive, easy to make, lemony delicious, and so good! I can't decide if I prefer them over my other lemon cookies so maybe soon I'll have to do a bake-off between them. :)

Lemon Crinkles
Recipe from LDS Living

½ cups butter, softened
1 cup granulated sugar
½ teaspoons vanilla extract
1 whole egg
1 teaspoon lemon zest
1 Tablespoon fresh lemon juice
¼ teaspoons salt
¼ teaspoons baking powder
⅛ teaspoons baking soda
1-½ cup all-purpose flour
½ cups 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.
