I finally made a batch of these wonderful Lemon Shortbread Cookies this afternoon. They are sooo good!

I used the full amount of juice from one lemon, since I wasn't going to be making the glaze. It ended up being between 2 and 3 TBLSP of juice. I used my little 1 TBLSP spring loaded scoop and pressed them with the bottom of a glass. Next time I'll make them just a bit thicker. I'll be making these again!

Thanks, Alix!

Lemon Shortbread Cookies [FONT=Comic Sans MS]Here you go Andy! 1 cup butter 1/2 - 3/4 cup brown sugar 2 cups flour 1 tbsp fresh squeezed lemon juice zest of one lemon Either work the dough with your hands or pulse in the food processor until ingredients are combined. You can use a cookie press with this dough, or you can make 1/2 inch diameter logs (about 2 inch) and bake those. Bake for about 15-20 minutes at 325. They should be JUST a bit golden around the edges, be careful not to overbrown them. Some folks prefer to dip the ends in melted chocolate, but I like to make a lemon glaze or leave them au naturel. Lemon Glaze 2 tbsps lemon juice 1 cup icing sugar Stir sugar into juice until it is a thick, goopy glaze. Add more lemon juice if necessary to thin. Brush onto warm cookies with a pastry brush.
