I wasn’t sure if I was going to be able to participate in #HousefulOfCookies this year because time…
Life, kids, life, work, life……
So I was able to figure out how to make some cookies that made me smile.
I LOVE sweet tart things….the tarter the better….
So I went out on a limb and figured out how to have the taste that I wanted while not having to do too much work.
So I totally cheated and purchased some ready to bake sugar cookies…
I baked them for about 12 minutes….
and then I made a lemon glaze to go on them…….
Oh. Em. Gee………
This was EXACTLY the taste I was after and I was so happy. The lemon glaze was super simple to make. I altered the recipe that would normally be used for cake and let it ride. I used about 1/3 cup of powdered sugar and added lemon juice until I got the taste I was after.
My mom loved lemon cookies and this was me feeling closer to her this holiday.
My kids let me know that they were the best cookies ever (as is with everything I seem to make for them lol) and I KNOW this is a sweet treat I will be making more often.
I want to send a thanks to Mrs. Houseful from Houseful of Nicholes. She has gathered a great group of bloggers to tell you all about cookie goodness on this Friday. Be sure and search for the #HousefulOfCookies hashtag and see what we are all talking about this year!!
