1C Butter, softened
3/4C Granulated Sugar (154g)
2t finely shredded lemon peel (about 2 lemons)
2C AP flour (10.75oz)
Powdered Sugar (optional - for sprinkling)
Preheat oven to 350.
Beat butter for 30 seconds. Add granulated sugar. Beat until combined, scraping bowl as needed.
Beat in lemon zest. Then beat in flour. Mix any unincorporated flour by hand, then drop dough onto baking sheets. (Parchment lined or ungreased). I used a 1.5T cookie scoop and placed them approx. 2 inches apart. Cookies will not spread much and will keep the domed shape.
Bake for 15-20 minutes, until edges are light brown.
Transfer to a wire rack. Sprinkle with powdered sugar, if desired.
