  • Preheat oven to 350 F. Whisk together four, polenta and salt in a bowl.
  • Put butter, sugar and lemon zest in the bowl of electric mixer fitted with paddle attachment, beat on medium-high speed until pale and fluffy, about 2 minutes, scraping down the sides of the bowl as needed. Add egg and egg yolk, one at a time, beating after each addition to combine. Mix in vanilla. Gradually add flour mixture, and beat until just combined.

Bake cookies until edges are golden, 15 to 18 minutes, rotating sheets halfway through. Transfer cookies on parchment to wire racks to cool completely. Cookies can be stored in an airtight container at room temperature up to 1 week.
