- 6 T. butter

Combine the flour, salt and baking soda in a medium bowl; set aside.
Whisk the eggs, sour cream, lemon zest, and lemon juice in another bowl and set aside.
Place the butter in a large bowl and beat with an electric mixer until creamy. Add sugar in two additions beating until blended after each. Add the sour cream mixture and mix. Add half of the flour mixture and mix again. Stir in remaining flour mixture by hand.
