Happy Friday! Recently, I made a few batches of iced lemon cookies for a fundraiser at work. Actually, I ended up making 7 dozen iced lemon cookies. That’s a whole lotta cookies, folks!
Today I’m going to share this recipe with you for anyone looking for a great springtime or summer cookie recipe! We have a restaurant in town called Ham N’ Goody’s and their famous lemon cookies are the BEST! So I’ve been told. Oddly enough, I myself am not too wild about lemon cookies, but still I bake 7 dozen. Yeah, I’m weird like that.
So here is the recipe I use that I’ve been told is alot like Ham N Goody’s famous iced lemon cookies. 🙂 Hope you enjoy!
3 cups unsifted all purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1 cup butter or margarine, softened
1 cup sugar
1/3 cup reconstituted lemon juice or use fresh
1 1/4 cup confectioners sugar
2 tablespoons reconstituted or fresh lemon juice
Sift flour, baking powder, and soda into large bowl. Beat butter and sugar. Gradually add dry ingredients and lemon juice to sugar mixture. Chill dough for 1 hour.
On a floured surfaced, roll half of the dough out to 1/8″ thickness. Cut out the cookies into desired shape. Place on ungreased baking sheets and bake at 400 degrees for 7 – 9 minutes.
Mix sugar and lemon juice together. Once cookies have cooled, top with glaze. Let set before eating.
