I found this recipe in Redbook, and I can't wait to try it!

Ingredients You'll Need

1-1/2 c. all-purpose flour
1/4 tsp baking powder
1/4 tsp baking soda
1/4 tsp salt
1/2 c. (1 stick) unsalted butter, softened
3/4 c. sugar
1 large egg
1 tsp lemon zest
1 tsp vanilla extract
1/2 c. sour cream
sugar for sprinkling


Preheat oven to 375F.

Grease 2 large baking sheets.

In a small bowl, whisk together flour, baking powder, baking soda, and salt.

In another bowl, beat together butter & sugar for 2 min.

Beat in egg, lemon zest, and vanilla until well-blended.

Beat in sour cream, then flour mixture, until combined.

Drop dough by 1/3-cupfuls three inches apart on sheets; sprinkle with sugar.

Bake in lower third of oven for 15 min, or until cookies spring back when pressed lightly.

Let stand 3 min on sheets; cool completely on wire racks.
