Lemon Christmas Cookies ~ Mittens

 If you like the flavour of lemon 
you'll love these cookies. 
Very fast and easy to make
 with minimal ingredients.

I used a new mitten cookies cutter
to make these.


3/4 cup butter, softened
3/4 cup granulated sugar
2 teaspoons grated lemon peel
1 egg
2 1/4 cups all purpose flour
pinch of salt.

For the glaze:

2 cups powdered/icing sugar
2 tablespoons lemon juice
2 tablespoons water
Candy decorations. 

Heat Oven to 350deg.F

In a large bowl, beat butter and sugar 
with electric mixer on medium
 speed until light and fluffy. 

Add lemon peel and egg,
beat until well blended.

On low speed gradually add in the
 flour and salt until well blended.

Place dough on a floured surface,
The dough will appear that it 
needs more liquid, but it doesn't. 
Mix it together with your hands.

Roll out dough about 1/8 inch thick.
Cut out cookies with a cookie cutter.
Place cookies on an ungreased 
cookie sheets, about 1 inch apart.

Bake 10-12 minutes or until 
cookies just begin to brown.
Remove from cookie sheets 
to cooling racks.
Cool completely about 10 minutes.

Making the Glaze

In a small bowl, mix powdered/
icing sugar, lemon juice and water.
Spread glaze on tops of cookies,
sprinkle with candies to decorate.

When glaze is dry, store
in an airtight container.

I adapted this recipe from:
for their snowflake cookies.
