Meyer Lemon Crinkle Cookies

  • Yield: 18 cookies


  • 1 1/2 cups flour
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1/4 tsp baking soda
  • 1/2 tsp cornstarch
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 2 Tbsp Meyer lemon zest
  • 1/2 cup unsalted butter, softened
  • 1 large egg
  • 1 Tbsp fresh Meyer lemon juice
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla extract

For Rolling

  • 1/2 cup powdered sugar


  1. Whisk together flour, baking powder, baking soda, cornstarch, and salt in a medium bowl. Place sugar and Meyer lemon zest in a food processor and pulse for one minute. Beat butter and Meyer lemon-sugar in a large mixer bowl at medium speed until creamy; beat in egg, lemon juice, and vanilla until combined. Reduce speed to low and gradually add flour mixture; beat just until incorporated. Cover dough and chill in the refrigerator for at least 4 hours or overnight.
  2. Preheat oven to 350Β°F (If cookie dough has chilled overnight, let stand at room temperature for 20 minutes before baking). Line two baking sheets with silicone mats or parchment paper. Place powdered sugar in a shallow bowl. Scoop 1 1/2-inch balls of dough and roll in powdered sugar to coat; place two inches apart on prepared baking sheets.
  3. Bake, rotating pans halfway through, for 12 to 15 minutes, until edges are set and tops are matte (not shiny). Cool for 5 minutes on baking sheets, then transfer to a wire rack to cool completely. Store in an airtight container at room temperature.
