How to make it
- Thoroughly stir together first three ingredients. If you have time, sift them. I didn’t and the cookies turned out fine. Stir in the salt.
- In a mixing bowl, cream the butter and sugar. Beat in the vanilla and lemon zest, then one by one, beat in the egg yolks.
- Slowly stir in the flour mixture. Mix well.
- Form into 1 inch balls and place balls about 2 inches apart on a non-stick or parchment lined cookie sheet. Bake for 10-12 minutes or until the cookies start to brown around the edges. Let cool on cookie sheet for 2 minutes, then transfer to a cooling rack.
