3 cup all purpose flour

1 teaspoons baking soda

0.25 teaspoons coarse salt

1.75 cup sugar

0.25 cup packed light brown sugar

1 tablespoons finely grated lemon zest

1 cup (2 sticks) unsalted butter, room temperature

2 large eggs

1 tablespoons fresh lemon juice


Step 1:

Preheat oven at 350. Sift together flour, baking soda, and salt.

Step 2:

Put sugars and zest in the bowl of an electric mixer fitted with the paddle attachment. Mix on medium speed 30 seconds. Add butter; mix until pale and fluffy, about 1 minute. Mix in eggs one at a time, and then the lemon juice. Reduce speed to low; gradually mix in flour mixture.

Step 3:

Using a 1 1/2" cookie scoop, drop dough onto parchment paper-lined baking sheets, spacing 3 inches apart. Flatten cookies slightly; sprinkle with sanding sugar. Lightly brush with a wet pastry brush; sprinkle with more sanding sugar.

Step 4:

Bake cookies until golden, about 15 minutes, rotating sheets halfway through. Transfer cookies to wire racks using a spatula; let cool completely. Cookies can be stored in airtight containers at room temperature up to 3 days. This is from the Martha Stewart Cookbook
