DIRECTIONS

  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Generously butter two baking sheets, or line them with parchment paper.
  • Combine the butter and sugar in a mixing bowl; beat until light and fluffy. Beat in sour cream and egg.
  • In a separate bowl; whisk together the flour, baking powder, and salt. Gradually beat the dry ingredients into the butter mixture until they are well combined.
  • Stir in currants and lemon zest.
  • Drop heaping teaspoonfuls of dough about 1 1/2 inches apart onto prepared baking sheets. Bake until cookies are puffed and golden around the edges, about 20 minutes.
  • Let cool 5 minutes on baking sheets before transferring cookies to wire racks to cool completely.
