Lemon Glazed Cookies – Here’s a delicious lemon cookie that’s sure to become a family favorite. My kids loves these cookies. They are requested at many family gatherings. Bake a batch and taste the lemony yumminess!
I think everyone has his or her favorite lemon cookie recipe. Well, here’s one of mine. This particular recipe is a softer more cake-like cookie. My kids describe them as pillowy. They come out soft with a nice lemon flavor. These are made with whole-wheat pastry flour, which is a nice light flour and has fiber as well. Half whole wheat pastry flour and half all purpose flour for the perfect cookie texture. The recipe is easy to make and really delicious. I bet these will become a family favorite too. By the way, they make great edible gifts for teachers and perfect at holiday time.
Lemon Glazed Cookies
Yield: 36 cookies
Here’s a couple more lemon dessert recipes that are just as yummy!
- 1 cup whole wheat pastry flour
- 1 cup all purpose flour
- 1 tsp baking soda
- 1/2 tsp baking powder
- 1/2 tsp fine sea or kosher salt
- 1 stick butter or margarine, softened
- 3/4 cup granulated sugar
- 2 tbsp granulated sugar
- 2 large eggs
- 2 tsp vanilla extract
- zest of one medium lemon
- 2 tbsp fresh lemon juice
- 6 ounce container vanilla Greek yogurt
- 1 cup sifted powdered sugar
- 3/4 tsp vanilla extract
- 1-2 tsp fresh lemon juice
- a few drops cold water if needed for a smooth glaze
1.Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Line 3 cookie sheets with parchment paper and set aside.
2.In a large mixing bowl, cream the softened butter using an electric mixer, then add the sugar slowly and mix until light and fluffy. Add the eggs one at a time, vanilla extract, lemon zest, lemon juice, and yogurt.
3.Start adding your dry ingredients, flour, baking soda, powder and salt. Mix until well combined. Take a rubber spatula and make sure you scrape the bottom of the mixing bowl to combine all ingredients.
4.Using a small cookie scoop, place 12 mounds on each cookie sheet. With clean wet hands, slightly pat down just a little. Bake one cookie sheet at a time on the middle rack and rotate after about 5 minutes. Bake for about 10 to 13 minutes until light brown. Take out and let cool on a wire rack. Continue until all cookies are done and cooled.
5.While the cookies are cooling, make your glaze. In a small mixing bowl, combine the powdered sugar along with the vanilla extract that’s been mixed into the water and lemon juice. You want a smooth, slightly runny glaze but one that will stay on the cookie.
6.With a small spoon or the tines of a fork drizzle over each cookie. Let set up a few minutes. When set, serve to everyone you love!
