Why I Love This Recipe

An unknown magazine clipping from many years ago.

Ingredients You'll Need

2 1/2 cups flour
1 1/2 cups sugar
1 cup butter, softened
2 eggs
1 tbsp grated lemon peel
1 tbsp lemon juice
1 1/2 tsp cream of tartar
1 tsp baking soda
1/4 tsp salt

2 1/2 cups powdered sugar
1/4 cup lemon juice
grated lemon peel


Heat the oven to 400 F.

Combine all the cookie ingredients in a large bowl.

Beat at low speed, scraping the bowl often, until well mixed.

Drop the dough by rounded teaspoonfuls 2 inches apart onto ungreased cookie sheets.

Bake for 6 to 8 minutes or until the edges are lightly browned

Meanwhile, combine all the glaze ingredients in a small bowl.

Stir until smooth.

Frost the warm cookies with the glaze.

Sprinkle with grated lemon peel, if desired.
