  • Prep

  • Cook

  1. Beat butter in a large bowl until smooth. Add sugars and continue mixing. Add egg, lemon zest, lemon juice and vanilla. Mix until fully incorporated. Add baking powder, and then flour (slowly, while mixing). Stop mixing as soon as the flour is fully incorporated. Cover dough and chill in the refrigerator about 1 hour.
  2. Place lemon curd into a small ziplock bag, and cut off one corner of the bag.
  3. When the dough has chilled, preheat oven to 350*F. Roll small balls of dough and place on a silpat lined, or parchment lined baking sheet. Flatten balls of dough slightly with the palm of your hand. Use your thumb to create a crater in the center of the dough. Fill crater with about 1 teaspoon of lemon curd.
  4. Bake cookies about 15 minutes, or until cookie edges are just turning golden brown. Remove from oven, cool slightly, then move to a wire cooling rack to cool fully. Dust cookies with powdered sugar.
