When Bakers Give You Lemons...
These cookies melt in your mouth because of the unusual but simple combination of ingredients.

  1. Place flour, 1/3 cup sugar, tapioca starch, lemon zest, and salt in a food processor. Pulse a few times until everything is incorporated. Add the butter and let the motor run until the mixture forms into a dough.
  2. Transfer the dough to a sheet of parchment paper or plastic wrap and form into a log about 2 inches in diameter. Wrap the log with the plastic wrap and twist the ends to seal. Allow to chill in the refrigerator until firm, 30 minutes or up to 1 week.
  3. Preheat the oven to 350ºF. Remove the dough from the plastic wrap and slice into 1/4 inch rounds. Place the cookies on a parchment lined baking sheet and bake 12 minutes or until just beginning to brown on the edges.
  4. Allow the cookies to cool completely on the pan. Turn them upside down and dust completely with powdered sugar, then flip over and dust the tops.
  • All-purpose flour x 1 cup
  • Confectioner’s sugar, plus more for dusting the cookies x 1/3 cup
  • Tapioca starch x 1/3 cup
  • Lemon zest x 1 tablespoon
  • Pinch of salt x 1
  • Butter, cold and diced x 3/4 cup
