Lemonhead Cookies

Tuesday, May 17, 2011

I've talked a lot about Over The Top Cookies, so I thought I'd talk some more... only this time it'll be about a recipe I've duplicated. I've been searching for the perfect recipe for quite some time... and yes the lemon cookies I made last time were really good, but they weren't at all the same. This time though, I stumbled upon the one. There were a few changes I made, they'll be reflected in the recipe below. So try them out, you're going to love them!

Lemonhead Cookies
3 c. flour
1½ c. granulated sugar
1½ c. butter or Crico
2 large eggs
1 tsp. vanilla
2 tsp. lemon juice
1 tsp. baking soda
½ tsp. salt
Zest of 1 lemon
1 (8 oz.) bag of Lemonhead candies, crushed

2 tsp. lemon juice
½ c. powdered sugar

1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
2. In a mixing bowl, cream sugar, eggs and butter (or shortening) together. Add lemon juice and vanilla extract. Beat for 1 minute.
3. Stir in salt, baking soda, flour (add flour one cup at a time), lemon zest, and crushed Lemonheads.
4. Roll dough into 1-inch balls, flatten and bake on a pan lined with parchment paper for 10-12 minutes.
5. Let cool on pan for 3 minutes.
6. Transfer to cooling racks and prepare glaze by whisking together powdered sugar and lemon juice. Add additional powdered sugar if necessary. Use a spoon to drizzle lightly over cookies. Let cool.
