These delicious Soft & Thick Lemon Sugar Cookies are easy to make, infused with a refreshing, light lemon flavor, and topped with thick cream cheese frosting!
In a small glass bowl, microwave butter until melted. Pour into large mixing bowl. Add in white sugar and powdered sugar and mix for 10 seconds.
Add eggs, vanilla, and lemon extract and mix on medium speed for 20 seconds.
Turn mixer to low speed, and add baking powder, baking soda and salt. Mix for 10 seconds. Half cup at a time, add flour and mix until flour is just incorporate (about 10-20 seconds). Do not overmix.
Bake at 350 degrees for 8-10 minutes. (The magic number in my oven is 9 minutes) They may look underdone, but they will finish baking on the hot cookie sheet after you take it out of the oven. (Of course, because ovens bake differently use your best judgement to keep them in a minute longer if they look severely underbaked.)
