Meyer Lemon Crinkle Cookies

Yield: 24 Cookies (about)
Total Time:
30 mins
These cookies have a soft interior texture with a slightly crisp exterior given to it by rolling the cookies in confectioners sugar before baking. Their texture reminds us of one of our favorite cookies, our Snickerdoodles, but with a lemon flavor. Feel frees to make adjustments to suite your taste of sweetness and add a little more sure if you aren't using meyer lemons. 


  • 1 1/2 cups (190g) Flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon Sea Salt or Kosher Salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon Baking Powder
  • 1/8 teaspoons Baking Soda
  • 1/2 cup (113g) unsalted Butter , softened
  • 1/2 cup (110g) packed Brown Sugar
  • 1/2 cup (100g) Sugar
  • ½ teaspoon (3ml) Vanilla Extract
  • 1 Egg
  • 1 teaspoon (5ml) Meyer Lemon Zest (@ 1 meyer lemon's worth)
  • 2 Tablespoons (30ml) fresh Meyer Lemon Juice
  • 1/4 cup (30g) Confectioners Sugar


  1. Preheat an oven to 350°F. Line a couple sheet pans with parchment paper.
  2. In a medium bowl, whisk or sift together the flour, salt, baking powder, and baking soda (whisk for at about 20 seconds to make sure it is well combined). Set aside.

  3. In mixer, beat together the butter, brown sugar, and sugar until light and fluffy. Beat in the vanilla extract, egg, meyer lemon zest, and meyer lemon juice until well combined. Scrape down the sides of the bowl and mix again to make sure everything is incorporated.
  4. Stir in the flour mixture until just combined, making sure to scrape the bottom of the bowl to get all of the flour.
  5. Sift the confectioners sugar onto a large plate. Form the dough into 1 inch sized balls (a 1/2 oz. cookie scoop works perfectly to help make balls). Roll the balls in the confectioners sugar then place 2 inches apart on the lined sheet pans.
  6. Bake for 10-14 minutes or until the bottoms of the cookies just begin to turn light golden and the tops of the cookies look matte (no longer shiny or wet looking). Remove from the oven and allow to cool for a few minutes before transferring to a wire rack to finish cooling.
