Perfect lemon shortbread cookies. I love shortbread in general but there's definitely something about lemon that I adore. I made these for the holiday season but really there's no reason you can't make them any time of the year. Perfect with a cup of tea for a bright sweet treat. I use my standard shortbread recipe with the addition of lemon zest and lemon extract. Then I make a royal icing by mixing icing sugar with a splash of lemon extract and lemon juice. While I try to make treats that use whole food ingredients and unrefined sugar most of the time, I like to just forget all that once in awhile for something classic like this cookie.
Yield : I got about 25 cookies (depends on the size of your cutters)
