Lemon Cloud Cookies

These cookies have been in our family cookbook for a long time. I’m not sure where they came from originally, but they are delicious served with a cup of coffee or tea.


  • 1 cup Flour
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 2 tablespoons butter, melted
  • 1 egg
  • juice of 1 lemon or lime
  • zest of 1 lemon or lime
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
  • confectioner’s sugar for dusting


Mix all the ingredients together well and let the dough rest for about 20 minutes in the refrigerator.

Preheat the oven to 350ºF. Using a small cookie scoop, form the cookies and roll each round in confectioners sugar. Place on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper. Bake for about 8-10 minutes. Delicious!
