How to make the best lemon cookies:

  1. Start by creaming the butter and sugar together until light and fluffy, about 4 minutes. This creates air in the dough, which gives the cookies volume once they go into the oven. It also helps the butter wrap around the sugar and create a smooth texture.
  2. Add fresh lemon juice, lemon zest, lemon extract and eggs. By using all three lemon ingredients, you give these chewy lemon cookies the most lemon flavor possible.
  3. Add dry ingredients and mix only until combined. Do not overmix the dry ingredients or the cookies will become tough. We want chewy cookies!
  4. If you want the cookies to have a more yellow coloradd yellow food coloring to the dough.
  5. Roll lemon cookie dough into balls then place the powdered sugar in a bowl. Roll cookie dough balls in powdered sugar.
  6. Place on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper and cook until tender and moist. Don’t overbake these lemon crinkle cookies.
