Lemon Drop Cookies

 If you like lemon, you'll love these cookies.

Easy to make with minimal ingredients. 


Ingredients:

Makes 2 dozen cookies

2 cups all purpose flour

1/2 tsp baking soda

1/2 tsp salt

1 tbsp lemon zest


2 tbsp lemon juice

1/2 cup butter at room temperature

1 cup sugar

1 large egg

1 tsp vanilla extract


Lemon Glaze:

1 cup icing sugar (confectioners’ sugar)

about 2-3 tbsp lemon juice


Instructions:

Preheat Oven to 350deg.F
Prepare 2 cookie sheets.

In a large bowl whisk together
the flour, baking soda, salt
and lemon zest.
(Im showing off my new
zester, it works so well.)




In another bowl with a mixer
mix together the lemon juice, butter, 
sugar, egg and vanilla.



Mix the both bowls together.




Drop mixture by heaping tablespoon full
or use a cookie scoop, onto 2 cookie
sheets.  

Bake 15 - 20 minutes or
until the edges are golden. 


Let cook before adding
the glaze. 

I added some sprinkles,
I had on hand.


Happy month of May.
My sister, Annie,  bought me this pretty
cup and saucer for my birthday
which falls on Mother's Day this year.




I adapted this recipe from
Martha Stewart.com.
