For every season there is the perfect cookie. Molasses for fall, Mint for winter...etc. Today I found the perfect one for spring! An easy recipe with a delicious taste.

 You will need:
- One stick (8T) softened butter
- One cup sugar
- One egg
- One Tablespoon fresh squeezed lemon juice
- One teaspoon lemon zest
- 1/2 teaspoon vanilla
- 1/4 teaspoon salt
- 1/4 teaspoon baking powder
- 1/8 teaspoon baking soda
- 1 and 1/2 cups flour

And 1/2 cup powdered sugar to roll the cookies in before baking.

 Preheat oven 350. In a stand mixer (or hand held) cream the butter and sugar until light and fluffy. Add the egg, lemon juice, zest and vanilla. Mix until combined. Scrap the sides of the bowl and beat again for another 30 or 40 seconds. Next, add the dry ingredients: salt, baking powder and soda, flour. Mix with a wooden spoon until just combined. Scoop dough into rounded balls, maybe a little bigger than a rounded tablespoon.(Don't worry if the dough is sticky.) Roll them in the powdered sugar and bake for 9-11 minutes. You want them to be golden brown on the bottom but not the top! Perfect for afternoon tea!
