Lemon-Lime Crinkle Cookies

by foodlikecake

I know I say this a lot, but these cookies are amazing! Soft, slightly chewy lemon-lime cookies coated in powdered sugar. So good. There’s a lot of zest in this recipe which makes this cookies pop with bright lemon-lime flavor.

1/2 cup unsalted butter, room temperature

Line the baking sheet with parchment paper and set aside.

In a large mixing bowl cream the butter and sugar together with a hand-held mixer until light and fluffy.

Add the egg, lemon juice, lime juice, lemon zest, lime zest and vanilla; beat until well combined. Scrape sides of the bowl, and mix for an additional 30 seconds.

Refrigerate dough, in bowl, for 1 hour.
