Recipe Ingredients for Frosted Lemon Poppy Seed Cookies

1/2 cup butter, softened
2/3 cup sugar
2 tbsp lemon zest
1 large egg
1 1/2 cups all purpose flour
1/2 tsp baking powder
1/4 tsp salt
1 tbsp poppy seeds
1/2 cup powdered sugar
2 tbsp lemon juice

Recipe Directions for Frosted Lemon Poppy Seed Cookies

  1. Preheat oven to 350F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.

  2. In a large bowl, cream together butter, sugar and lemon zest until light and fluffy. Beat in egg.

  3. In a small bowl, whisk together flour, baking powder and salt. Add to wet ingredients and mix until just combined, then stir in poppyseeds. Drop by 1-inch balls onto prepared baking sheet.

  4. Bake for 9-11 minutes, until cookies are set and just begin to brown at the edges (the bottoms may be lightly browned, but not the top of the cookies)

  5. Cool for 1-2 minutes on the baking sheet, then remove to a wire rack to cool before glazing.

  6. Whisk together juice and sugar until icing is a smooth, pourable consistency. Add additional juice if yours is too thick to drizzle easily or additional sugar if it is too thin.

  7. Drizzle over cookies. Cookies should not be hot, but it is ok if they are not completely at room temperature before frosting.

  8. Cookies must be cooled to room temperature before being stored.
