Ingredients You Need

Preheat oven to 350° F and line 2  baking sheets with parchment paper. In a large bowl, add butter and sugar and using an electric hand mixer or stand mixer blend until creamy.


Add the egg, vanilla extract, baking soda, salt, lemon zest and juice; blend another minute. Add almond flour, stir with spatula until cookie dough forms and refrigerate for 30 minutes.


Using a small scoop, scoop dough, roll into a ball, place on baking sheet and gently press with fingers to flatten cookies. Cookies spread somewhat, so leave 1.5 inch in between. Repeat with remaining dough.


Bake on a middle rack for 12 minutes. Remove from the oven and let cool for 10 minutes.


While cookies are cooling, make glaze by whisking powdered sugar and lemon juice in a small bowl. Drizzle over cookies and enjoy!
