Updated Nov 19, 2009

Ingredients

Cookies

  • 1 1/4 cups powdered sugar
  • 1 cup butter or margarine, softened
  • 1 tablespoon grated lemon peel
  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice
  • 1 egg

  • 1/4 teaspoon salt

Glaze

  • 1 cup powdered sugar
  • 4 to 5 teaspoons lemon juice
  • 2 teaspoons powdered sugar

Steps

  • 1

    In small bowl, mix 1 cup powdered sugar and enough lemon juice for desired drizzling consistency. Drizzle over cookies; let stand until set. Sprinkle with 2 teaspoons powdered sugar.

Tips from the Pillsbury Kitchens

  • tip 1
    Substitute lime peel and lime juice for the lemon peel and juice.
  • tip 2
    The lemon glaze can be replaced with a chocolate drizzle. Melt milk chocolate chips and drizzle over cookies. Let stand until chocolate is set.
