Glazed Lemon Cookies

Glazed Lemon Cookies

These cookies are very bright in flavor. Probably the zest is one of the things that sends them over the top. The second thing that gives them a wow factor is straight lemon juice in the glaze. They are super delicious. If you decide to make them you may want to double the batch. I got 28 cookies. I like to double my recipes and place in my fridge a ziplock bag with dough so I can make them anytime I want. It’s very convenient especially around the holidays! Enjoy!
