Combine dry ingredients: We like to sift or whisk them together to get rid of any lumps.

Step One

Beat the butter and sugar, and add the remaining ingredients: You can use a stand mixer or a hand held electric mixer.

Step Two

Chill the dough, then bake: Cover the mixing bowl and chill the dough for 2-3 hours. Drop 1 tablespoon dollops of dough onto a parchment-lined baking sheet and bake.

Step Three

Remove the cookies from the oven and let the cookies cool on the baking sheet for 1-2 minutes. Then, dip the tops of the cookies in the lemon icing.

Step Four

Place the cookies on a cooling rack until the icing dries, and enjoy!
