Lemon Sugar Cookies

Dorie Greenspan's Lemon Sugar Cookies are an easy to make sugar cookie, flavored with lemon juice, lemon rind, and vanilla.

Dorie gives a variety of baking times, depending on your desired texture.  8-10 minutes should result in pale, chewy cookies; 12-14 minutes should give you cookies with chewy centers and crisp edges.  I baked my batch for 12 minutes and got crisp cookies.  Next time I will try reducing the baking time slightly for a slightly softer cookie.

I contributed most of these cookies to a funeral reception where they languished amidst more showy baked goods.  Perhaps some colored sprinkles would have made them more attractive.  I thought the cookies were very good.  Next time I'll add more grated lemon rind or perhaps lemon extract.
