  • Use an electrical mixer: It’s finest to make use of an electrical mixer for this recipe with the intention to beat the butter and sugar collectively till it’s good and fluffy. I really like this hand mixer or this KitchenAid mixer, which is nicely definitely worth the funding!
  • Be sure that your butter is softened to room temperature: I like to recommend taking it out of the fridge an hour earlier than baking these cookies. Don’t try to melt your butter within the microwave–for those who do that the cookies won’t end up accurately!
  • Be sure that your egg is at room temperature: Merely run it below heat water for a minute or two to deliver the egg to room temperature earlier than utilizing it within the recipe.
  • Don’t pack your flour. Scoop your flour into the measuring cup after which stage it off with the flat finish of a butter knife.
  • Permit cookies to utterly cool earlier than placing icing on them: If you’re in a rush and need to pace up the method you may put the cookie sheet within the freezer for 10-15 minutes after baking.
  • Use recent lemon juice: be sure you use freshly squeezed lemon juice for this recipe. Don’t use lemon focus, it’s too potent and bitter.
  • Don’t neglect the lemon zest: the lemon zest is essential to flavoring these lemon cookies, so don’t skip it. Here’s the inexpensive zester I like to recommend.
