    Glazed Lemon Cookies

    Adapted from Real Simple

    Makes 48 cookies| Hands-On Time: 20m | Total Time: 1hr 45m


    ?       3/4 cup (1 ? sticks) unsalted butter, cut into cubes, at room temperature
    ?       3/4 cup granulated sugar
    ?       2 large egg yolks
    ?       1/2 teaspoon lemon extract
    ?       1/4 teaspoon salt
    ?       1 ? - 2 cups all-purpose flour
    ?       1 cup confectioners' sugar
    ?       2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice, plus more if necessary
    ?       1 teaspoon grated lemon zest (optional)


    1.      With an electric mixer, beat the butter and granulated sugar until
    fluffy.  Add the egg yolks, vanilla, and salt and beat to combine.
    Gradually add the flour, mixing until just incorporated.
    2.      Divide the dough in half and shape into 1 ? inch-diameter logs.
    Wrap in wax paper and refrigerate until firm, about 30 ? 45 minutes.
    3.      Heat oven to 350? F.  Slice the logs into ? - ? inch-thick pieces
    and space them 1 ? inches apart on parchment-lined baking sheets.
    Bake until lightly golden, 8 to 12 minutes.  Let cool on the baking
    4.      In a small bowl, whisk together the confectioners' sugar, lemon
    juice, and zest (if desired) until it forms a thick but pourable glaze
    (add more lemon juice if necessary).  Dip the top of each cookie into
    the glaze and let set, about 15 minutes.

    To freeze: Instead of refrigerating the dough, freeze the logs for up
    to 2 months.  To bake, follow the recipe instructions, cutting and
    baking the dough from frozen, and use the upper end of the time range.
