Ingredients

For the Cookies

  • 1 cup unsalted butter, slightly melted and then cooled I melt for 30 seconds in microwave, some lumps will remain
  • ¾ cup light brown sugar
  • ¾ cup granulated sugar
  • 1 large egg + 1 egg yolk
  • 1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice, juice of ½ lemon
  • 1 ½ teaspoons vanilla
  • 2 ¾ cups (355 g) all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • ½ teaspoon salt

For the Cinnamon and Sugar

  • ¼ cup granulated sugar
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon

Instructions

  • In a large mixing bowl, cream together the butter, brown sugar and granulated sugar. Mix the butter and sugars until light and fluffy.
  • Add the egg, egg yolk, lemon juice and vanilla. Stir to combine, scraping the edges of the bowl as needed.
  • In a small bowl, combine the flour, baking soda and salt. Add the dry ingredients to the butter mixture and mix until just combined. I like to add the dry ingredients in 2 parts.
  • Using a 1.5 tablespoon cookie scoop, scoop cookie dough and arrange on a half sheet pan. Chill cookie dough in the refrigerator or freezer for at least 30 minutes.
  • Preheat the oven to 350°. Line two half sheet pans with parchment paper. Roll the chilled dough in the cinnamon and sugar mixture and arrange onto the prepared pans, about 2 inches apart. 
    Bake the cookies for 10-12 minutes, or until the edges are lightly browned but the centers are still soft.
  • Remove the cookies from the oven and allow them to sit on the baking pans for 5-7 minutes before transferring them to a cooling rack. The cookies can be stored in an airtight container for 2-3 days.
