Easy Lemon Sugar Cookies

There are so many cooking videos out there now.  How could I ever compete with them?  Especially since I am not really a good cook.  I just love trying it out.  Of course, I never have time to try them all out either, so I just watch the videos and save them.  I thought maybe I could start blogging some of them.

They are all over Facebook now and getting to be quicker and quicker videos for our fast paced world.  Have you noticed that?  I like them though.  I always stop to watch them.

Hubby and I always loved these Lemon Coolers and have not seen them around in a while.  Seeing the below recipe made me wonder if there is a home made recipe similar to Lemon Coolers.  Anyone know?


3 cups all-purpose flour
1 tsp baking soda
½ tsp baking powder
1 tsp kosher salt
1 cup (2 sticks) unsalted butter
1½ cup granulated sugar
2 large eggs
1 tsp vanilla extract
zest of 2 large lemons
3 Tbsp fresh lemon juice
granulated sugar for sprinkling

325 degrees
Sift flour, baking soda, baking powder and salt.
Cream the butter and sugar together.
Add the eggs then beat.
Add vanilla, lemon zest and lemon juice.
Add the dry ingredients.
Place balls of dough on a parchment lined baking sheet.
Sprinkle the tops with sugar. 
Smoosh until they are ½" thick 
Dust with a bit more sugar.
Bake 10–12 minutes.

These look yummy! My husband has to have gluten-free, and I've found some really good ones (Pamela's), but would love to know how to make that kind.

I've found a wonderful site where I can collect recipes (as easy as pinning on Pinterest), plan menus, and have shopping list - way more features than that, actually - I'm loving it. http://www.plantoeat.com/recipes/

If you find a recipe, let me know.

That looks like a good site and I love that you shared, but unfortunately I'm not that organized with my meals and grocery.

We have a grocery app we use and we have listed in it everything we normally buy and we sit down before we shop and go through the list and mark everything we need/want for that trip.
