  • Makes
    6 dozen

Ingredients

  • 2/3 cup plus 2 tablespoons sugar
  • 2 teaspoons grated lemon zest
  • 1 cup unsalted butter, softened
  • 1 large egg, room temperature
  • 2 teaspoons lemon juice
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 2-1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1/4 teaspoon baking powder
  • Dash salt
  • 1 package (12 ounces) dark chocolate chips

Directions

  • Preheat oven to 350°. In a small food processor, combine sugar and lemon zest; cover and process until blended. In a large bowl, cream butter and 2/3 cup lemon sugar until light and fluffy. Beat in egg, lemon juice and vanilla. Combine flour, baking powder and salt; gradually add to creamed mixture and mix well.
  • Using a cookie press fitted with a 1-1/2-in. bar disk, form dough into long strips on ungreased baking sheets. Cut each strip into squares (there is no need to separate the pieces).
  • Bake until set (do not brown), 8-10 minutes. Remove to wire racks to cool completely.
  • In a microwave, melt chocolate; stir until smooth. Dip cookies diagonally in chocolate, allowing excess to drip off. Place on waxed paper; sprinkle chocolate with remaining lemon sugar. Let stand until set. Store in an airtight container at room temperature, or freeze up to 3 months.
