In bowl, mix flour, baking powder and salt. In another bowl, using electric mixer, beat butter and sugar until light and fluffy. Beat in egg and vanilla. Reduce speed to low. Beat in flour mixture and lemon zest in three additions until fully blended. Divide dough into two portions and form into two disks; wrap in plastic wrap and refrigerate for 45 minutes. (Can be refrigerated for up to 1 day. Let stand at room temperature or until soft enough to roll out, about 15 minutes.)

Preheat oven to 375°F. Between two pieces of waxed paper, roll out 1 portion of dough into ¼-inch thickness. Using 2-inch cookie cutters in desired shapes, cut out cookies, rerolling scraps once. Repeat with remaining dough. Place cookies about 2 inches apart on 2 parchment paper–lined baking sheets.

Bake, one pan at a time, until bottom of cookies are lightly golden, about 10 minutes. Let cool in pan on rack for 1 minute. Transfer cookies directly to rack and let cool completely.

Top Cookies with a thin layer of melted white chocolate and candy sprinkles.
