I suggest doubling the recipe because you can't stop at just one!
Makes 32 cookies
1/3 cup butter, melted
3 tbsp powered sugar
2 tbsp lemon juice
1 pinch salt
zest of a lemon
1/2 tsp baking soda
1 tbsp starch, corn or potato
1 1/4 cup flour
1/4 cup powered sugar for tossing hot cookies in
While mixer is running add the butter, sugar, juice, salt, baking soda, and starch together.
Once well mixed begin to slowly add the flour till you have to knead the dough together. The dough will be greasy, but don't add extra flour!
Roll into logs that about 1-1.25" think. Wrap tightly with saran wrap and place in the refrigerator.
|Top one is already wrapped|
For the next hour go shake the limoncello, do the dishes and change the laundry.
Preheat oven to 350°F and line a cookie sheet with ungreased parchment paper.
Using a sharp knife cut the logs into coins that are about 5/16" thick and place on the cookie sheet.
Bake for 12-15 mins. Prep a baggy with the remaining powdered sugar.
Once cookies are removed from the oven pop them into the baggie with sugar and shake it up so that they are covered.
