Lemon Poppy Seed Sugar Cookies

Another recipe from My Kitchen Cafe! And it is soooo good!
The recipe from the site is just for the cookie,

but I decided to try cream cheese frosting on top and thought it was delightful!

1/2 c. butter, softened
1/2 c. sugar
1/2 c. brown sugar
1 egg
1/2 tsp. vanilla
zest of one lemon
2 c. flour
1 tsp. baking powder
1/4 tsp. salt
1/4 tsp. baking soda
1 tbsp. poppy seeds
1/4 c. buttermilk

Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Beat butter, sugar, and brown sugar together until light and fluffy, about 3 minutes. Add egg, vanilla, and lemon zest and mix well. Add dry ingredients and pulse together in mixer to combine. Add buttermilk and mix well. Drop onto cookie sheet (I rolled mine into balls- it's a sticky dough). Bake for 10-12 minutes, until edges are set and cookie is puffy and still light colored.

Frost with cream cheese frosting if desired!

1/4 c. butter, softened
4 oz. cream cheese, softened
2 c. powdered sugar
milk (to desired consistency)
