PREP TIME: 12 min / COOK TIME: 15 min / TOTAL TIME: 32 min


2 separated eggs, separated

½ tsp baking powder

⅛ tsp salt

¼ c sugar

2 tsp vanilla extract

¼ tsp grated lemon zest

⅓ c all-purpose flour

Confectioners’ sugar

  1. PREHEAT the oven to 375°F. Line baking sheets with parchment paper.
  2. BEAT the egg whites until foamy in a large bowl with an electric mixer on medium speed. Slowly add the baking powder, salt, and sugar and continue beating on medium speed until stiff peaks form.
  3. COMBINE the egg yolks, vanilla, and lemon zest in another bowl, and beat with a fork until thoroughly mixed. Fold into the beaten egg whites just until combined. Sift the flour over the egg mixture and fold in until the batter is smooth and light. Drop 2 teaspoons of batter per cookie about 2″ apart onto the prepared baking sheets.
  4. BAKE for 12 to 15 minutes, or until golden. Cool on the sheets for 5 minutes, then remove to racks to cool completely. The cookies will crisp upon cooling. Dust with confectioners’ sugar before serving. For best results, store covered.
