Discover the delightful world of Lemon Shortbread Cookies - a perfect balance of buttery goodness and zesty lemon flavor.
Preheat your oven to 325°F (160°C). Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
In a mixing bowl, cream together the softened butter and granulated sugar until light and fluffy.
Mix in the lemon zest and fresh lemon juice. These will infuse your cookies with that lovely citrusy aroma and taste.
Gradually add the all-purpose flour and salt to the mixture. Mix until the dough comes together.
Roll the cookie dough into a log shape, about 2 inches in diameter, using plastic wrap or parchment paper.
Wrap the dough log tightly and refrigerate it for at least 1 hour. This helps the cookies hold their shape.
