Lemon Glazed Sugar Cookies
One of the treats I had for L’s 1st birthday dessert table was Meyer Lemon Glazed Sugar Cookies. They were very simple and received rave reviews. After multiple friends requested the recipe I decided I had better post it here. I made these cookies one week in advance, let the glaze harden a few hours, then froze until the day of the party. I’ll have the rest of the party details and a tutorial on the edible wafer paper butterflies in a later post.
Easy Sugar Cookies
Bake 8 to 10 minutes in the preheated oven, or until golden. Let stand on cookie sheet two minutes before removing to cool on wire racks.
Recipe from AllRecipes.com
2 lemons, preferably Meyer lemons
1 box confectioners’ sugar (won’t use the whole thing)
Start with the juice of one lemon in a small bowl. Whisk in confectioners’ sugar until stiff but still spreadable and will still move around the cookie. To thin, add more lemon juice, to thicken, add more sugar. Dip tops of cookies in glaze, or spread on using a small offset spatula or back of a spoon. Let glaze dry/harden two hours or until dry to the touch.
