Lemon Iced Lemon Cookies is a very easy sugar cookie recipe adapted from a sugar cookie recipe I found a few years ago on Fine Cooking.



Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Line baking sheets with parchment paper.

  1. In a small bowl sift the flour baking powder, baking soda and salt, set aside.
  2. In a stand mixer (or you can use a hand mixer) beat the sugar, butter, shortening and lemon zest on medium speed until light and fluffy, about 1 minute. Scrape down the sides of the bowl.
  3. Add the egg to the sugar/butter mixture and mix for a few seconds to combine. Add in the vanilla, lemon juice and honey and continue to mix at medium speed for about 1 minute.
  4. Now add in the flour mixture and mix on low for a few seconds. Scrape down the bowl and mix on medium-low speed until just until the dough is well blended – approx. 15-25 seconds.
  5. Using a cookie scoop, 1 tablespoon size, scoop dough onto prepared pan and flatten to approx. 1/4 inch, spacing 2 inches apart.
  6. Bake one sheet at a time until the edges are golden and the tops are cracked but not completely set, 13 to 15 minutes. Let the cookies cool on the sheet for at least 5 minutes before transferring to a wire rack to cool completely.
