I happen to have a thing for lemon desserts. I absolutely love lemon! Recently, I had a craving for something lemony and sweet. So I decided I was going to make some lemon glazed cookies. I used my girl, Martha Stewart’s recipe and they came out delicious!
Now I will put this disclaimer out there… when I want the cookies, I wanted something I could prepare fast. So I used store brought sugar cookie dough. The cookies still came out very tasty, but next time I think I will make my own cookies as well.
Lemon Glazed Cookies
- Sugar cookie dough
- 2 cups powdered sugar
- 2 tbsp grated lemon zest
- 1/3 cup of lemon juice
The most tedious part of this recipe will be using a grated to get the lemon zest. I ended up using a whole bag of lemons in order to get my two tablespoons.
Preheat your oven as the cookie instructions require. Place your cookie dough on a cookie sheet.
While the cookies are baking, mix the powdered sugar, zest and lemon juice all together. Stir until everything is mixed well and you have a thick syrup like consistency.
Take cookies out of the oven (per time instructions) and allow them to cool. Once they have cooled, spoon the lemon glaze onto the cookies. I ended up doing this twice. I spooned the glaze once and let it sit and cool for a few minutes. Then I went back and added more glaze and allowed the glaze to set.
After my glaze was set, I tasted the cookies and they were just sooo yummy. This recipe was fairly easy, so I will definitely be making them again. The glaze was so good… I need to find more recipes to use it.
