Mmmm! Lemon Crisps {Recipe}

Update: These cookies are amazing! I finally got around to making them last delicious, I would highly recommend making them.

I saw this cookie crisp recipe from Whisk Kid and thought that it would be a nice weekend baking recipe to try. Mmmm, I can feel them melting in my mouth.

Lemon Crisps (click on the title to link to her page for more pretty pictures)
1/2 c (118 g) unsalted butter, room temp
3/4 c (149 g)sugar
1 egg, room temp
1 1/2 Tbsp lemon juice (I just used the juice of half a lemon)
1 1/2 Tbsp lemon zest (I used the zest from the whole lemon)
1/2 tsp vanilla
1/2 tsp baking powder
1/4 tsp baking soda
1/4 tsp salt
1 1/4 c (156 g) flour

Preheat oven to 350F (175C).
Cream together the butter and sugar, then add the egg, juice, zest and vanilla. Sift in the dry ingredients and mix until just combined. Drop by 1 1/2 tsps onto lined baking sheets and bake 10-12 min until lightly golden around edges. Let cool on sheets one minute before placing on racks to cool completely. Makes about 2 dozen.

Lemon Icing
You probably won't need this much icing, but it depends on how much icing you want to put on the cookies. I used around 3/4 c icing sugar and just enough lemon juice to make a thick paste.
1 c (150 g) icing sugar
4-6 Tbsp lemon juice

Beat together and drizzle over cooled cookies.
