I'm always looking for new and better cookie recipes... this was one sugar cut and roll one that has a great vanilla and citrus flavor and handles really well. 

  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 2 sticks (8 ounces) unsalted butter, at room temperature
  • 3/4 cup sugar
  • 1 large egg
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 Tablespoon (or 2) of fresh lemon zest

Whisk flour and salt together

Cream butter and sugar until incorporated, add zest

Add egg and vanilla and beat until just combined

Reduce speed to low and gradually add the flour mixture; mix until just combined

Form dough into two equal-sized balls and flatten into discs. Wrap both in plastic and chill at least 1 hour

Bake @ 350°F
