Cookies Ingredients:

  • 1 3/42 C Flour
  • 1 TBSP Cornstarch
  • 1/4 TSP Salt
  • 1/4 TSP Baking Powder
  • 1/4 TSP Baking Soda
  • 1 Stick Unsalted Butter, Softened
  • 1/2 C Sugar
  • 3 TBSP Lemon Juice, Meyer Lemon
  • 1 TBSP Lemon Zest, Meyer Lemon
  • 1 Large Egg Yolk

Glaze Ingredients:

  • 2 C Powdered Sugar
  • 23 TBSP Lemon Juice, Meyer Lemon
  • 1 TBSP Lemon Zest, Meyer Lemon


  1. Prep a cookie sheet with parchment paper.
  2. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  3. In a medium sized bowl whisk together the flour, cornstarch, salt, baking powder and baking soda.
  4. Using an electric mixer (set on medium-high) beat the butter and sugar until it turns pale and fluffy, about 3 minutes.
  5. Add in the lemon juice, lemon zest, and egg yolk beating until combined.
  6. Lower the mixer speed from medium-high to low.
  7. Divide the flour mixture into thirds and begin slowly adding in the first third of the flour, scraping the sides as needed. Repeat this process until all the flour is mixed in.
  8. (Note: Check the dough to make sure that it can hold together. It should not be sticky when touched. If the dough is still sticky slowly add in small amounts of flour until dough is no longer sticky.)
  9. Start cutting out cookies using a 2 inch round cookie cutter.
  10. Put the cookies on the cookie sheets leaving 1 inch between each cookie.
  11. Bake for 12-14 minutes, or until the edges are slightly brown.
  12. Allow the baked cookies to cool on the cookie sheets for 5 minutes.
  13. Transfer the cookies to a wire rack to cool completely.

Glaze Directions:

  1. Mix the powdered sugar and lemon juice in a mixing bowl.
  2. Then mix in the lemon zest.
  3. Ice each cookie.
  4. Set aside each completed cookie until they are fully set.
  5. Enjoy!
