IngredientsIngredients

  • ½ cup butter, softened
  • ¼ cup cream cheese, softened
  • 1 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 large egg
  • ½ tsp vanilla
  • 2½ cups all-purpose flour
  • 2 tsp cornstarch
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • ¼ tsp salt
  • 2 tbsp lemon zest
  • 3 tbsp lemon juice
  • 1½ tbsp water
  • ¾ cup powdered sugar

DirectionsDirections

Preheat the oven to 350° F. Combine butter and cream cheese in a bowl with a mixer for 1 minute. Add sugar, egg, and vanilla extract and continue to beat on medium to high speed until light and fluffy, about 5-7 minutes. Add half the flour, all the cornstarch, baking soda, salt, and lemon zest. Add the lemon juice and the remaining flour. Mix to combine until the dough starts to form a ball. Add a little more flour, if needed, for ball formation. Cover and refrigerate the dough at least 2-3 hours or overnight. Prepare a baking sheet with cooking spray. Scoop about 1½ tablespoon cookie dough. Roll into a ball and place it on a baking sheet. Bake for 8-10 minutes. Remove cookies from the oven, and while still hot, slightly press down. Allow cookies to cool completely. Combine powdered sugar and water together in a small bowl. Whisk until ingredients are combined with no lumps. Drizzle on top of cookies and allow to harden.
