Glazed Lemon Cookies

_MG_9864.jpgOur church has a food pantry every 2nd Saturday of the month. While they give out a ton of food there is often some perishable items that are left, and can't be saved for the next month. My Lutheran Stud texted me a photo of a box of lemons and asked if I wanted them. Of course I wanted them even though I had no idea what I was going to do with them. After a little research on things that would use up several lemons at a time I found these Lemon Glazed Cookies. 
_MG_9836.jpgCookies are a staple around here, but usually on the menu are chocolate chip cookies. My children have told me that they have a new favorite cookie. I think the glaze on these cookies is what sold them . . . and me too! They licked the leftover glaze clean.
_MG_9840.jpgSeriously, if you love lemon anything you won't be able to eat just one. I've had to work hard to stop myself from eating 5 in one sitting. I made these cookies for dessert for our Lenten supper at church and they were disappearing before the meal was even served.
_MG_9859.jpgI think the fresh lemon juice really gives it the kick that everyone loves, so be sure to use fresh lemons and not that bottled stuff.
Lemon CookiesNow, if you're a lemon lover, like myself, get baking. You'll have to practice some self control, just like me.
