  • ⅛ teaspoon baking soda
  • 1½ cups all-purpose flour
  • ½ cup powdered sugar (to roll the balls in)
  • ½ cup white chocolate chips, optional
  1. Preheat your oven to 350 degrees. Then line your cookie sheets with parchment paper and set aside.
  2. In a large bowl, cream the butter and sugar together until light and fluffy. Add the vanilla, egg, lemon zest, and lemon juice mixing till incorporated.
  3. Stir in all dry ingredients (and white chocolate chips if using) slowly until just combined, but don't add the powdered sugar.
