DIRECTIONS

  • In a medium bowl, whisk flour, baking powder, and salt.
  • In a large bowl using a hand mixer, beat butter and cream cheese with sugar until light and fluffy, about 2 minutes. Beat in eggs, lemon zest, lemon juice, vanilla and food coloring.
  • Beat in dry ingredients until just combined. Cover bowl with plastic and refrigerate until firm, at least 2 hours and up to overnight.
  • Preheat oven to 325° and line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  • Roll dough into 2" balls, then roll in powdered sugar. Let sit 2 minutes until sugar is absorbed, then reroll in powdered sugar (do not shake off excess). Place about 2-inches apart on prepared baking sheet and bake until cookies crackle and are set but still slightly soft in the center, 17 to 19 minutes.
  • Transfer to a cooling rack and let cool completely.
