Round Tea Cookies with Lemon Glaze

Recipe Ingredients for Glazed Lemon Cookies

3/4 cup butter
3/4 cup sugar
2 large egg yolks
1/2 tsp. vanilla extract
1/4 tsp. kosher salt
2 cups flour
1 cup powdered sugar
2 T fresh lemon juice
1 tsp. grated lemon zest

Recipe Directions for Glazed Lemon Cookies

  1. With an electric mixer, beat the butter and the granulated sugar until fluffy. Add the egg yolks, vanilla and salt and beat to combine. Gradually add the flour, mixing until just incorporated.

  2. Divide the dough in half and shape into 1 1/4 inch diameter logs. Wrap in wax paper and refrigerated until firm, about 30 minutes.

  3. Heat oven to 350 degrees. Slice the logs into 3/8 inch pieces and space them 1 1/2 inches apart on parchment-lined baking sheets. Bake until lightly golden, 16 - 20 minutes. (I baked them for 15 minutes.) Let cool on the baking sheets for 5 minutes, then transfer to cooling racks to cool completely.

  4. In a small bowl, whisk together the powdered sugar, lemon juice and zest until it forms a thick but pourable glaze (add more lemon juice if necessary). Dip the top of each cookie into the glaze and let set, about 15 minutes.

  5. You can freeze the logs for up to 2 months. To bake, follow the recipe instructions, cutting and baking the dough from frozen. Use the upper end of the time range.
