Our 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.
Cookies 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.
Seriously, 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.
I 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.
Now, if you're a lemon lover, like myself, get baking. You'll have to practice some self control, just like me.
