C&M Glazed Lemon Cookies
That’s right. You heard us. Now pull your head out of your ass and make these cookies.
For the Cookies:
2 C all purpose flour
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon kosher salt
1 1/2 Tablespoon finely grated lemon zest
3 Tablespoons fresh lemon juice
1/2 C (1 stick) unsalted butter @ room temperature
1 C sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1. First things first. Preheat your oven to 350 degrees. Line 2 cookie sheets with parchment paper.
2. Whisk together first 4 ingredients in a bowl or rounded plate with high sides.
3. Beat butter and sugar with an electric mixer until light and fluffy. And for reals, let it get light and fluffy. Don’t just mix it until combined. Don’t be an asshole.
4. Add egg, vanilla and lemon juice. Beat until combined.
5. Beat in flour mixture in 2 or 3 additions. Mix on low and BEWARE FLOUR STORM.
6. Drop by heaping Tablespoons, spaced 1 inch apart, onto prepared baking sheets.
7. Bake for 15-20 minutes (ours took almost exactly 15, so keep an eye on those little monsters) ROTATE sheets halfway through cook time, front to back and top to bottom (Oooh sexxxy.)
8. Cool on wire rack then glaze.
For the Lemon Glaze:
2 C confectioners sugar
2 Tablespoons finely grated lemon zest
1/3 C fresh lemon juice
Mix all this together until smooth. Write obscenities on cookies if desired. If you’re at a loss for a obscenity, leave a comment on this post and we will be happy to help you insult someone.
We prefer very lemony cookies. The lemon juice and zest have been increased slightly to create a more satisfying mouth puckering sensation. If you prefer a more subtle lemon flavor, decrease the zest and/or juice. And the glaze really makes these cookies totes bad ass, so don’t get lazy and skip it.
