We’ve teamed up with the Dating Divas to spice up your movie date night:
3 cups 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 powdered sugar
3 Tablespoons lemon juice
3-5 drops yellow food coloring (optional- I used about 5)
In large mixing bowl, combine butter and sugar. Mix well until creamy and combined. Stir in flour, baking powder, baking soda, and salt. Pour in the lemon juice and mix well until dough forms. Cover and refrigerate for about 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 degrees for about 7-8 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 (if you can wait that long) and enjoy!
Makes 4-5 dozen cookies.
