After 5 minutes you can see that the milk has curdled.
Now whisk the powdered sugar with butter until nice and creamy ( I just used my hand whisk, you can use a beater too )

Finally add the lemon zest and give a quick mix. The dough will be little sticky.
Make small sized balls and place them on a baking tray lined with parchment paper. Press down the cookie lightly with a fork and bake for 10-12 minutes.(Optionally before baking, you can sprinkle some powdered sugar on the top)

If the dough is too sticky add a tsp of flour not more than that.
To make the balls little easily, you can keep the dough in the fridge for 1/2 an hour.
Always don't overwork the cookie dough. Overworking develops gluten and will make the cookies tough.
