Lemon Icebox Cookies

Looking for a yummy lemon cookie? This is a good one. Lemon Icebox Cookies from Jan/Feb Everyday Food were a winner here. I made half a batch of this since it said it made 60 cookies. You make the entire thing in the Cuisinart which is a nice quick solution that I loved! You do have to chill the dough after you make it, which adds some time to this. Once the log of dough is chilled, Martha says to roll it in sugar, then slice it. I think if I made this again, I might do something to the cookies after slicing – they looked pretty plain with just a little sugar on the sides.

They were wonderful though. They taste like a lemon shortbread, but just a bit lighter. They would be wonderful with tea or to serve to people after a nice lunch.  I enjoyed them a lot and everyone in the house gives them a thumbs up!

    Hi.
    Thanks for posting your photo of the cookies. I’m planning on making them, but I have a question: Do you use room-temperature butter or cold butter?

    Hi Jacqueline. I usually take my butter out of the fridge and defrost it a bit in the microwave so it is soft. Let me know how the cookies turn out!
