Lemon Citrus Cookies #SundaySupper

Spring has sprung!!  I’m so happy for the warmer days!  The longer days!  I love the sunshine, wearing flip flops, the time of year before it gets to be a miserable Texas summer.

Spring is the season I wished never ended.  The weather is perfect.  The colors of the blooming flowers & trees are beautiful.  Kids are out playing.  It’s the time of year where you need shorts during the day and a blanket to cuddle up with at night.  And I love it!

One of my other favorite things about Spring is the fresh citrus that starts becoming available again.  Fresh oranges, fresh limes, fresh lemons ~ they all scream Spring!  What’s your favorite part of the season??



YIELD: 4 dozen

  • 3 small lemons
  • 1/2 cup turbinado (raw) sugar
  • 3/4 cup butter, softened
  • 1 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 2 cups flour
  • 1 & 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 2 teaspoons fresh lemon juice


  1. Preheat your oven to 350 degrees. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  2. In a small bowl, zest all of the lemons. Remove about 2 teaspoons of the zest and place in a separate bowl. Add the 1/2 cup of turbinado sugar to the 2 teaspoons of zest. Combine with a fork and set aside.
  3. In a mixing bowl, combine the butter and the 1 cup of granulated sugar. Beat for 1-2 minutes. Add the egg and beat until combined. Add the flour, baking powder and baking soda. Beat until combined. Slowly add in the remaining zest and the lemon juice.
  4. Scoop the dough into 1/2 tablespoon size balls. Then roll them in the turbinado sugar & zest mixture, coating generously. Place the ball on cookie sheet and repeat. Bake for 10-12 minutes. Remove and cool on wire rack.
