  • Total Time: 35 mins
  • Yield: 40 1x


  • 2 cups of regular all-purpose flour
  • 116 grams (4 oz) of butter (3/4 cup)
  • 3/4 cup of granulated sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 1/2 teaspoon of baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon of lemon zest
  • 3 tablespoons of powdered sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon of lemon juice

  3. In a bowl, mix the butter and the granulated sugar together.
  4. Then, add the egg and the lemon zest. Mix well.
  5. Add the flour and the baking powder to the mix.
  6. Once the dough is properly mixed, make a roll and cut in small pieces. Then, shape each piece as an “S” (as you can see in the picture).
  7. Place them on the baking tray, and bring them to the oven for 10 minutes.
