Here is a delicious cookie recipe that will melt in your mouth, perfect to add to the kid’s lunch box.
2 1/3 cups All-purpose flour
3/4 teaspoon Baking powder
1/2 teaspoon Baking soda
1/4 teaspoon Ground turmeric
1/2 teaspoon Kosher salt
1 cup Granulated sugar, divided
2 tablespoon Lemon zest
1/2 cup Unsalted butter softened
1 Large egg, room temperature
1 Large egg yolk, room temperature
1/4 cup Lemon juice
1 1/2 teaspoon Vanilla extract
1 1/2 cups Powdered sugar
In a medium bowl, whisk together the flour, baking powder, baking soda, ground turmeric, and salt until evenly combined. Set aside.
- In the bowl of a stand mixer fitted with a paddle attachment, combine 3/4 cup of sugar and the lemon zest. Rub the mixture between your fingers to release the lemon oils into the sugar. Add the butter and beat on medium speed until light and fluffy, 3 to 4 minutes. Add the egg, egg yolk, lemon juice, and vanilla, and beat on medium speed until incorporated for about 30 seconds. With the mixer on medium-low speed, gradually add the flour mixture, beating until just combined. Cover dough and chill for at least 1 hour or up to overnight.
- Preheat the oven to 350°F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper. Place the powdered sugar in a medium bowl. Place the remaining 1/4 cup of granulated sugar in another medium bowl.
- Using a 1½-inch scoop, drop 1 dough ball (about 1½ tablespoons) into the bowl of granulated sugar and roll to coat. Place in the bowl of powdered sugar and roll to heavily coat; transfer to the prepared baking sheet. Repeat until the baking sheet has 6 to 7 dough balls, spaced at least 2 inches apart.
Bake until the tops of the cookies are crackly and bottoms are lightly browned, 12 to 14 minutes. Let the cookies cool on the baking sheets for 2 minutes. Transfer to a wire rack to cool completely, about 30 minutes. Repeat the process with the remaining dough.
The cookies are best the day they’re baked but can be stored in an airtight container at room temperature for up to three days.
