Make-It Monday

Lemon Blossom Cookies

  • 3 Cups All Purpose Flour
  • 1 Cup Sugar
  • 1 Cup Butter or margarine, softened
  • 1/3 Cup fresh or bottled lemon juice
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt


  • 1-1/2 cups confectioner’s sugar
  • 3 tablespoons lemon juice
  • few drops yellow food coloring (optional)
In large mixing bowl combine butter and sugar. Mix well until creamy and combined. In separate bowl stir together with a spoon flour, baking powder, baking soda, and salt. To the butter mixture add lemon juice and dump in flour mixture. Mix well until dough forms. Cover and refrigerate for an hour.

Roll out dough to 1/4 inch thickness on floured surface. Cut with small circle cutter (I used 1-1/2 inch). Place on ungreased baking sheets and bake at 400 for about 8 minutes. Remove to cool.

Combine glaze ingredients and stir with a spoon until lumps disappear. Spoon a little bit into center of each cookie and spread around with the back of a spoon. Make more glaze if needed. Allow to dry for an hour or so and then stack cookies and store in cookie jar.

**These were absolutely wonderful. They are just so delicious and different. We really liked them.
