Cuisine: American
Recipe type: Dessert
  • 2¼ c. all-purpose flour
  • 1¼ tsp. baking powder
  • ¾ tsp. kosher salt
  • 10 tbsp. unsalted butter, room temperature
  • 1 (8-oz.) block cream cheese, softened
  • 1¼ c. granulated sugar
  • 2 large eggs
  • 2 tsp. finely grated lemon zest
  • ¼ c. fresh lemon juice
  • 1 tsp. pure vanilla extract
  • 10 drops yellow food coloring
  • ¾ c. powdered sugar
  1. In a medium bowl, whisk flour, baking powder, and salt.
  2. In a large bowl using a hand mixer, beat butter and cream cheese with sugar until light and fluffy, about 2 minutes. Beat in eggs, lemon zest and juice, vanilla, and food coloring. Beat in dry ingredients until just combined. Cover bowl with plastic and refrigerate until firm, at least 2 hours and up to overnight.
  3. Preheat oven to 325° and line a baking sheet with parchment paper. Roll dough into 2" balls, then roll in powdered sugar. Let sit 2 minutes until sugar is absorbed, then reroll in powdered sugar (do not shake off excess). Place about 2-inches apart on prepared baking sheet and bake until cookies crackle and are set but still slightly soft in the center, 17 to 19 minutes. Transfer to a cooling rack and let cool completely.
