Pucker up and enjoy a Glazed Lemon Cookie!! Made for Spring, 2010 PAC. These are very easy to make. Dough IS crumbly, so I formed it more in the tablespoon (packed in) before putting on cookie sheet. I didn't need to flatten at all. Lemon zest is just the ticket to give it that extra lemon-y kick. Will definitely be making again. P.S. DH LOVES them! Thanks for posting.
These are terrific cookies, and very simple to make with ingredients I always have on hand. They are very crumbly before baking, so had to be hand-formed into little balls and then flattened, but it took no time at all. This made exactly 26 little cookies. I cut the glaze in half and it was the perfect amount to ice all of the cookies generously. Delicious! Made for PAC Fall 09 :)
