Description: This is a very tried and tested recipe for cookies that every one in my family loves. I've never seen people going wrong with their cookies. This might be your perfect recipe.

3/4 cup  butter
1 cup  powdered sugar
1  egg
1 1/4 cup  all purpose flour
1 tsp  baking powder
1/2 tsp  salt
1/2 tsp  vanilla extract
1/2 tsp  lemon zest

Instructions: Add sugar,butter and whisk these together in a bowl.
Add the egg and vanilla and whisk well.
Mix the flour, baking powder, lemon zest and salt
Mix all the above ingredients in one bowl. Knead well.
Refrigerate for 3-4 hours or more.
Take the dough and use a rolling pin to roll out the dough
use the cookie cutters, to cut out shapes as desired.(Personally I love hearts)
Set to bake
Bake until the cookies get firm. Don't over bake.


I divided my dough into 3 parts. In the first part I kneaded in cocoa powder(1/4 cup). In the second part I added chocolate chips. The third part was left plain(I decorated these ones with roasted almonds after cutting out shapes).
