1
In a stand mixer, cream sugar and unsalted butter until light and fluffy, about 2-3 minutes. Add lemon zest, vanilla extract, almond extract, eggs, and lemon juice, and mix until fully combined.
2
Sift all-purpose flour, baking powder, and salt together. Add it to the stand mixer on medium speed and mix just until combined.
3
Wrap the dough in plastic wrap and refrigerate for at least 2 hours, preferably overnight.
4
When you're ready to bake, preheat the oven to 350°F (180°C).
5
Using a tablespoon scoop, drop tablespoon amounts of dough into powdered sugar and roll until well covered. Place onto a parchment-lined cookie sheet.
6
Bake for 9-11 minutes until cookies are set but not browned. They will be soft when taken out and will harden as they cool. Allow the cookies to cool on a wire rack before serving.
