Luscious Lemon Glazed Cookies

Light And Luscious Lemon Glazed Cookies

I think everyone has his or her favorite lemon cookie recipe. Well, here’s one of mine. This particular recipe is a softer more cake-like cookie. Soft with a nice lemon flavor. These are made with mostly whole-wheat pastry flour, which is a nice light flour and has fiber as well. These are easy to make and really delicious. Hope you give them a try and maybe they will become one of your favorite lemon cookies too.

Luscious Lemon Glazed Cookies

Ingredients:

    For the Cookie:
  • 1 3/4 cups whole-wheat pastry flour
  • 1/4 cup all purpose flour
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 1/2 tsp baking powder
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1 stick Land O’ Lakes light butter, softened
  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 to 2 drops of SweetLeaf all natural Stevia
  • 2 large eggs
  • 2 tsp vanilla extract, use a good quality for best taste
  • Zest of 1 medium lemon
  • 2 Tbsp fresh lemon juice
  • 1 6-ounce container Yoplait vanilla Greek yogurt
  • For the glaze:
  • 1 cup powdered sugar, sifted
  • 3/4 tsp vanilla extract
  • A teaspoon or two of fresh lemon juice
  • A few drops of water for a smooth glaze

Directions:

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Line 3 cookie sheets with parchment paper and set aside.
  2. In a large mixing bowl, cream the softened butter using an electric mixer, then add the sugar slowly and mix until light and fluffy. Add the eggs one at a time, vanilla extract, lemon zest, lemon juice, SweetLeaf Stevia, and yogurt.
  3. Start adding your dry ingredients, flour, baking soda, powder and salt. Mix until well combined. Take a rubber spatula and make sure you scrape the bottom of the mixing bowl to combine all ingredients.
  4. Using a small cookie scoop, place 12 mounds on each cookie sheet. With clean wet hands, slightly pat down just a little. Bake one cookie sheet at a time on the middle rack and rotate after about 5 minutes. Bake for about 10 to 13 minutes until light brown. Take out and let cool on a wire rack. Continue until all cookies are done and cooled.
  5. While the cookies are cooling, make your glaze. In a small mixing bowl, combine the powdered sugar along with the vanilla extract that’s been mixed into the water and lemon juice. You want a smooth, slightly runny glaze but one that will stay on the cookie.
  6. With a small spoon or the tines of a fork drizzle over each cookie. Let set up a few minutes and enjoy!
