Best Lemon Cookies EVER!

These little beauties are sooooo good. My boys love them and so do I, which is kinda scary.
Lemon Meltaways
1 1/4 cups flour
3/4 cup butter softened
1/2 cup cornstarch
1/3 cup powered sugar
1 tablespoon lemon juice (I like to add a bit more. I like the cookies tart)
1 teaspoon grated lemon peel

In a large mixing bowl combine all cookie ingrediants. Beat at low speed, scraping bowl often until well mixed.
Divide dough in half. Shape each half into a 8x1" roll. Wrap in plastic refrigerate until firm 1 hour.
Heat oven to 350 cut each roll into 1/4" slices place 2" apart of a cookie sheet. Bake for 8-12 min. Cookies will not brown.
Lemon Frosting
3/4 cup powered sugar
1/4 cup butter softened
1 tsp fresh lemon juice
1 tsp lemon juice

Mix at medium speed.

I usually double the frosting because I like alot of frosting on my cookies.


  1. YUM! I will definitely be trying these! Thank you for posting, Ann! Cassandra ♥

  2. Those look so good. I may try to convert the recipe so they're gluten free. Hopefully they'll taste at least half as good as those look :)
