1 1/2 cups soften butter

1 cup cornstarch

2/3 cup powdered sugar

4 tablespoons of lemon juice

3 tablespoons of grated lemon zest

 

Icing Ingredients:

3/4 of cup butter softened

2 1/2 teaspoon freshly grated lemon zest

2 teaspoon lemon juice

 

Directions:

Sift dry ingredients together.

Combine lemon juice, lemon zest and softened butter with dry ingredients.

Beat at low speed until well mixed. 

Form into an inch long log. Wrap in plastic.

Refrigerate for 2 hours.

Heat oven to 350 degrees.

Cut each log into 1/4-inch slices. (Bigger cookies will just fall apart.) Place 2-inches apart on an ungreased cookie sheet. 

Bake 7 – 9 minutes. (Cookies will not brown. Don’t overcook!)

Cool.

(These cookies will be dry and crumbly. Don’t panic!)

 

Icing

Combine ingredients. Mix at medium speed, until fluffy.

(Add a couple of drops of yellow food dye if you like!)

 

Take cooled cookies and toss them into the icing. Mix well.

Roll into bite-sized balls.

(The icing will hold the cookie together and turns this into a mouthwatering delight!)

Freeze cookie balls for 30 minutes.

Dust with powdered sugar.

Freeze again. Keep frozen until ready to serve.

Serve these frozen!

Enjoy!

(Store these cookies in the freezer!)
