Tastes of Christmas- Day 5 Recipe

Today's cookies are Lemon Snowflakes- like lemon sugar cookies on lemon steroids- they are that good! You will definitely want to add these to your Christmas cookie repertoire!
Day 5
Lemon Snowflakes
From America’s Test Kitchen

1½ cups all-purpose flour
½ tsp. baking powder
½ tsp. salt
½ cup powdered sugar
1¼ cups granulated sugar
4 tsp. grated lemon zest
2 tbsp. lemon juice
4 tbsp. unsalted butter, melted and cooled
3 tbsp. vegetable oil
1 large egg plus 1 large yolk
1 tsp. vanilla extract

1.    Whisk flour, baking powder and salt together in medium bowl.
2.    Place powdered sugar in a small bowl and set aside
3.    Process granulated sugar and lemon zest in food processor until finely ground, about 30 seconds. Add melted butter, oil, lemon juice, egg and yolk, and vanilla and process until pale and thickened, about 30 seconds. Transfer to bowl with flour mixture and stir until incorporated. Cover bowl with plastic wrap and chill until dough is firm, about 1 hour.
4.    Roll 1½ tbsp. dough into balls, toss in powdered sugar, and space them 2 inches apart on prepared sheets. Bake cookies, 1 sheet at a time, until cookies are cracked and set on top but look moist within cracks, 10 to 12 minutes, rotating sheet halfway through baking.
5.    Let cookies cool on sheets for 5 minutes. Transfer to wire rack and let cool completely.
