More of the same....

Happy Wednesday to everyone!  It is that mid-week point for all of us.  Are you having a good week?

As promised, here is the second installment for the dessert tray next Tuesday.

Ready to bake!

Out of the oven.

Glaze added.

This recipe comes from a Land O' Lakes butter box from a couple of years ago.

2 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
1 1/2 cups sugar
1 cup unsalted butter, softened
2 eggs
1 Tablespoon grated lemon peel
1 Tablespoon lemon juice
1/1/2 teaspoons cream of tarter
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 teaspoon salt
- Combine all cookie ingredients in large bowl.  Beat at low speed, scraping bowl often, until well mixed.
- Drop dough by rounded teaspoonfuls two inches apart onto ungreased cookie sheets.
- Bake in 400 degree F oven for six to eight minutes or until edges are lightly browned.
2 1/2 cups powdered sugar
1/4 cup lemon juice
- Combine all glaze ingredients in small bowl; stir until smooth.  Frost warm cookies with glaze.  Sprinkle with grated lemon peel, if desired.
5 dozen cookies (I had a few more)

These are also waiting in the freezer for Monday night!

Next post - just spotted!

Thank you for reading.  I appreciate your comments.


  1. I just had breakfast and both of your posts make me want to eat all over again. I haven't baked in a while and seeing your wonderful food makes me want to get in there and bake away.
    I bet it smells nice. I just picked a bowl full of lemons so that would work with those lovely cookies.
    Thanks Nellie.

  2. Looks like a great addition to those lovely mint sticks from yesterday! I'll stick with the chocolate, if you don't mind! :-)

  3. Hi Nellie, thanks for your comment on my blog. I somehow lost connection with you and I'm adding you on my reader list.

    And I'm sure that butter, makes them delicious.

    But, that butter, is why I couldn't eat them.
