Add vanilla, almond, and lemon zest.


Sift in flour, baking powder, and salt a little at a time.


Do not over mix, this process should take about one minute.


Chill dough for up to a week in the fridge, or roll out and cut right away.

Wait until cookies are cooled before icing.

Notes

I found that this recipe made 30-32 big, thick cookies. Ashlee says 80, so I think it's just the size and thickness of the cookie.
