Step by Step Method

Step 1

Beat butter in a large bowl with an electric mixer until smooth. Add sugar, and beat until well blended. Add egg, lemon juice, vanilla extract and lemon peel until blended.

Step 2

In a separate bowl, combine flour, baking soda, salt and nutmeg. Gradually combine the dry ingredients into the butter mixture at low speed, blending well after each addition.

Step 3

Shape dough into 2 logs about 1 1/2 to 2 inches in diameter. Wrap each log in plastic wrap and refrigerate 2 - 3 hours. They can be stored for up to 3 days in the refrigerator or in the freezer for a later time.

Step 4

Preheat oven to 350 degrees and place parchment paper on a cookie sheet and spray with cooking oil.

Step 5

Slice the cookies 1/2 inch thick, coat them with powdered sugar and place them 1-inch apart on the cookie sheet.

Step 6

Bake about 15 minutes or until the edges are lightly brown. Transfer to a wire rack to cool. Store them in an airtight container. If you have a sweet tooth, you can also dip the cookies again in powdered sugar before serving them.
