Lemon Butter Cookies
recipe from Lisa@ The Cutting Edge of Ordinary - original recipe from Southern Living
1 cup butter, softened
1 teaspoon lemon zest
1 cup powdered sugar
2 cups all purpose flour
¼ teaspoon salt

Oven to 325.

Beat the butter and the zest at medium speed with a heavy-duty stand mixer until creamy. Gradually add the sugar and beat well.

Combine the flour and salt and gradually add it to the butter mixture, beating until well blended. Shape the dough into a disc.

Roll the dough to 1/8 inch thickness on a lightly floured surface. Cut with 2 ¼ or 3 ¼ inch cutters. Place ½ inch apart on a baking sheet lined with parchment.

Bake for 12 to 14 minutes or until edges are lightly browned. Cool on baking sheet 5 minutes. Transfer to wire rack to cool completely (about 20 minutes).
