  • 1/2 C butter, softened
  • 1 C sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 3/4 C buttermilk
  • 2 tbsp grated lemon peel
  • 4 tbsp fresh lemon juice
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 3 C Heritage White Flour or Heritage Bread Blend sifted
  • 1/2 tsp Baking Soda
  • 1/2 tsp Salt


  • 1 C powdered sugar
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla
  • 1 tbsp milk


  • Note: You will need to chill the dough for at least two hours, so plan accordingly.
  • In a large bowl, beat butter until light and fluffy. Add sugar and beat until well combined. Add egg; mix until well combined. Stir in buttermilk, lemon peel, lemon juice and vanilla. In a separate small bowl, sift together flour, baking soda, and salt. Gradually add to the butter mixture.
  • Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Drop small rounded teaspoons of dough onto parchment lined or lightly greased cookie sheets. Bake for 6-8 minutes or until the edges are slightly golden. Sprinkle a pinch of sugar over each cookie. Remove to wire racks to cool.
  • Optional: Glaze the cookies once they have cooled.
