    Lemon Filling

    Directions:

    1. 1
      To make cookies, preheat oven to 350°F
    2. 2
      In a large bowl using an electric mixer on high speed, beat butter, icing sugar, lemon zest, and salt until combined.
    3. 3
      With mixer on low, add flour (dough will be stiff); finish mixing with a wooden spoon.
    4. 4
      Turn dough out onto a piece of plastic wrap; pat into a disk about 1/2 inch (1 cm) thick.
    5. 5
      Wrap and chill until firm, about 1 hour (and up to 3 days).
    6. 6
      Unwrap dough; place on a lightly floured piece of parchment or waxed paper.
    7. 7
      With a lightly floured rolling pin, roll dough about 1/8 inch (3 mm) thick. (If dough cracks, let it warm up slightly).
    8. 8
      Cut out cookies with a 1 1/2 inch (4 cm) round cutter.
    9. 9
      (Re-roll scraps once, chilling if too soft).
    10. 10
      Place 1 inch (2.5 cm) apart on two baking sheets; sprinkle with granulated sugar.
    11. 11
      Bake until barely beginning to brown, 15-20 minutes. Transfer to wire racks to cool.
    12. 12
      For the filling, in a small bowl, mix cream cheese and zest until smooth.
    13. 13
      Gradually add 1 cup of icing sugar, mixing until smooth.
    14. 14
      Mix in remaining sugar as necessary to create a firm but spreadable filling.
    15. 15
      To form the sandwiches, place about 1 teaspoon filling between two cookies, sugared sides facing out; squeeze gently.
