chewy glazed lemon cookies

Lemon is definitely one of my absolute favorite summer I definitely didn't like it as much when I was younger, but hey, maybe my taste buds are finally starting to expand! (I'm the pickiest eater you will ever meet. Notice how I almost always post dessert recipes?) So when I saw a recipe for chewy lemon cookies with a glaze, I knew I had to try it! And I am so glad I did. YUM. A perfect treat for the last couple weeks of summer!

Chewy Glazed Lemon Cookies (recipe from Lauren's Latest)


1/2 cup salted butter, softened
1/2 cup granulated sugar + extra for flattening the cookies
1 egg
1 teaspoon vanilla
1/2 teaspoon lemon extract
zest of 1 lemon
1 teaspoon baking powder
1 1/2 cups all purpose flour
for the glaze-
1 cup powdered sugar
1 tablespoon lemon juice (note: I had to use WAY more lemon juice for the glaze to get the right consistency!) 


Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Line baking sheet with parchment paper or silicone baking mat and set aside.
Cream butter and 1/2 cup sugar together in stand mixer until light and fluffy. Stir in egg, vanilla, lemon extract and lemon zest. Scrape sides and mix again. Stir in dry ingredients until just combined. Scoop onto prepared sheets and flatten slightly with the bottom of a cup dipped in the extra sugar. Bake 8-9 minutes (I had to do about 10-11, and waited til the bottoms were slightly golden brown), cool 2 minutes and transfer to cooling rack.
Stir powdered sugar and lemon juice together until smooth. Drizzle over top of each cookie. After a few minutes, the glaze should dry and you can eat them ALL.

Have fun baking!
