Lemon Sugar Cookies

These little delights were served in individual wax paper bags at the first Sparrow House BBQ!  A delicious cookie that was unaffected by the raging heat that day!

1 Egg                        1/2 tsp. Baking Powder

1/2 tsp. Salt             1 1/2 C. Sugar

1 T. Lemon Zest     1/2 tsp. Vanilla

2 T. Lemon Juice    1 C. Butter, softened

Preheat oven to 350 degrees; line baking sheets with parchment paper.

Beat butter till smooth; add sugar; beat; add lemon zest, egg, vanillas, & Lemon Juice; beat.  Carefully add in dry ingredients.  Blend.  Using 2 T. size make balls of dough; roll in a bowl of sugar to coat ball.  Place 2″ apart on baking sheet.  Bake 8-9 min.; till set around edges.  Let rest on baking sheet 3-4 min. before moving to cool.

*Love them with Lime or Grapefruit too – just substitute zests and juices.
