These lemon cooler cookies are buttery, melt in your mouth cookies bursting with sweet, tart and zesty lemon flavor. Make these lemon cookies with powdered sugar for more sweetness.

Step 2:  

Mix the granulated sugar and lemon zest together until they are the consistency of wet sand.

Step 3:  

Beat in the room temperature butter and powdered sugar into the lemon sugar until well combined on medium speed until light and fluffy.

Step 4:  

On low beat in the egg yolk, lemon extract and vanilla extract until well combined. Mix the dry ingredients into the wet ¼ at a time, until just combined.

Scoop about 1 tablespoon (15 ml) of lemon cooler cookie dough onto the prepared baking sheet. Bake the sunshine lemon cookies for 10 -12  minutes.
