Lemon Drop Cookie Recipe is quick and easy to make any time, any season, and great for bridal and baby showers. This quick & easy cookie makes a small batch of about 18 cookies. Don’t be shy, make a double batch! They’re delicious and refined sugar free.



Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

  1. Mix flour and 1/4 cup confectioners’ sugar and add the lemon zest. Add in the softened butter and vanilla and blend. I use a fork to break down the butter into the flour and then use my hands to blend it all together. It only takes a minute or two (the dough will be very sticky).
  2. Using a small cookie scoop or a rounded teaspoonful drop onto a parchment lined cookie sheet.
  3. Flatten the dough a little to make the cookies similar in size so they will bake evenly.
  4. Bake until cookie bottoms are lightly golden brown, about 15 minutes. The cookies will NOT brown on top.
  5. Transfer to wire rack to cool. Add the remaining confectioners’ sugar to a plastic bag and when the cookies have cooled, after about 20 minutes, gently toss them in the sugar to coat.
  6. You can dress up the cookies with grated lemon peel before serving.


This is a shortbread style cookie similar to the Mexican Wedding Cookie, it’s a melt in your mouth cookie. You can use any flavors you wish, lemon, orange, anise, mint, etc.!
