Lemon Cookies With Vanilla Glaze...

Today I am sharing one of my new favorites treats. A friend at church shared this recipe with me a few weeks back. (It is originally from I couldn't wait to make these cookies. Lemon is one of my favorites. Whether it is a cake or a cookie, I am totally on board. My friend had warned me though that these sweet treats were addicting and I might want to make them when I knew I could share them. Boy am I glad I took her advice. I made these to bring over to a friends for dinner and pool time. By the end of the night 2 1/2 dozen cookies had been gobbled up. They were that good my friends! These have now made it to my regular cookie making rotation. It's so nice having a change from my typical chocolate chip cookies I make each week. These were also super easy to make. I made a video of the process, so you guys could come along with me and make them yourselves :)

I also made a recipe card below. I've been converting all my recipes to 4x6 cards and plan to put them in a fun card holder, once I print off all my cards. It's only 17 cents to print at Costco. I think all this organizing is my version of nesting. I can't get a nursery ready, since we'll be moving just a few weeks after Miss Tallia is born, so creating a bit of organization in my life has been my nesting go to this trimester. :)

Lemon Cookies With Vanilla Glaze

1 lemon cake mix
8 oz. cream cheese
1/2 cup butter, softened
1 egg
1 tsp vanilla

*Use 1 tbl flax seed + 3 tbl water to replace 1 egg

2 tbl butter
2 cups powdered sugar
2-3 tbl milk
1/2 tsp vanilla

Cookies: Soften cream cheese and butter. Mix cake mix, cream cheese, butter, egg, and vanilla together until butter and cream cheese are fully incorporated. Cookie dough will be quite thick and sticky. Chill for at least 2 hours. Grease hands and roll into ping pong size balls. Place on a lightly greased baking sheet. You can also use a greased cookie scoop. Bake @350' for 9-11 minutes, until tops are cracked and cookies are just puffed. Cool on a cooling rack.

Glaze: Melt two tablespoons of butter in a small saucepan or in the microwave. Remove from heat. Whisk in powdered sugar, vanilla, and 2 tablespoons of milk. Add more milk to reach desired consistency. Drizzle or pipe over cookies.
