1/2 cup salted butter, softened

1-1/2 cup granulated sugar

2 eggs

1/4 cup lemon juice

1 teaspoon fresh grated lemon zest

1/4 teaspoon salt

1/2 teaspoon baking powder

2-1/2 cups all-purpose flour

Powdered sugar for dusting

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.  Spray two baking sheets.

Cream butter and sugar until blended.  On low speed, add eggs, one at a time, until blended.  Add lemon juice and zest, mixing well.

Add salt, baking powder and flour, mix until blended.

Drop by rounded scoopfuls onto prepared baking sheets and bake until edges are firm with no color, 12 to 15 minutes.

Cool on baking sheets for five minutes, then transfer to cooling racks and let cool completely.   Dust with powdered sugar.  Putting the powdered sugar into a strainer and knocking it gently is the easiest way.  Enjoy!
