Lemon Shortbread Cookies with Lemon Glaze

I love lemon.

I love the smell of real lemons, the color of lemons, using lemons in cooking and baking and slicing them for water and finding a good lemon scented candle.

I also love shortbread cookies and have to force myself to step away from them at Sams during the holidays when they have a ton of those Dansk tins.....especially the little square cookies that have pearl sugar on them and a hint of cocoanut.


Both SU and I love to bake cookies, but we usually only do the drop style.

Why you ask...and I know you are..

Because I have a galley style kitchen about the size of Deb's over at Smitten kitchen and there is 0 as in zero counter space to roll out dough of any kind.

It is the only real thing I hate about the house...well that and no linen closet but what the hell, the house is paid for .

I subscribe to Heritage Cooks and get e mail updates so I opened the one dated today and saw the drop dead georgous picture and thought to my have to go check this out.

Scrolling down I saw as I suspected that this was yet another recipe for a rolled out and cut cookie.

Well crap says I, but I press on through the entire recipe and God bless her, she included instructions to roll the dough into a roll and how to bake them as slice and bake.

I am now smiling because someone out there realized that some folks have limitations and need variations.

Go check it out.
