2 sticks of butter, softened to room temp
1/2 cup powdered sugar
zest from a large lemon
1/2 tsp vanilla extract
1 3/4 cup flour
1/2 tsp salt
In a stand mixer, beat all step one ingredients on medium-high for 5 minutes.
Reduce the speed of the mixer and slowly add in the flour and salt.
Once all combined, return the mixer to medium-high, and cream for another 5 minutes.
This is the fun part! One two baking sheets lined with parchment paper, place your cookies about 1-2″ apart. I used a pastry bag to form spirals about 1.5″ in diameter, giving each cookie a nice little point.
Bake in a 350 F oven for ~12 minutes until dry to the touch. Allow to cool on the cookie sheet and EAT 🙂
Yields: ~3 Dozen Cookies
