  • Combine butter and sugar in a large bowl; beat with an electric mixer until creamy. Beat in egg and vanilla extract.

  • Mix flour, lemon zest, and salt in a separate bowl. Pour over butter mixture; beat until combined.

  • Roll dough out on a lightly floured surface and cut into cookies. Arrange on the lined baking sheets.

  • Bake in the preheated oven until edges are set and bottoms are golden brown, 12 to 15 minutes. Allow cookies to cool, about 10 minutes.

  • While cookies are cooling, mix icing sugar, lemon juice, and lemon zest together in a small bowl. Spread glaze over the cookies.

Cook's Note:

You can roll the dough into 2 logs and refrigerate for 1 to 2 hours, then slice and bake.
