Lemon Glazed Cookies Recipe


When life gives you lemons, making lemonade is way too mainstream. Go bake some lemon glazed cookies instead! 

Crunchy and sweet, with a slight tangy tinge of citrus lemony flavour, these cookies are perfect for a mini tea time snack. 


(gives about 6 batches of cookies, a dozen a batch - but actual numbers may vary depending on thickness of your cookies)

Cookie dough:

- 375g and 3 tablespoonfuls of flour
- 1.5 tablespoonfuls of corn starch
- 3/4 teaspoonful of baking soda
- 3/4 teaspoonful of salt
- 165g of unsalted butter (melted)
- 200g castor sugar
- 90g brown sugar
- 2 and 3/4 tablespoonfuls of fresh lemon zest
- 2 eggs
- 3 tablespoonfuls of fresh lemon juice
- 2 and 1/4 teaspoonful of vanilla extract 


- 1.5 cups of powdered sugar (around 375cm3)
- 3 tablespoonful of lemon juice
- A drop of green food colouring (optional)


1. Mix all ingredients for cookie dough in a large mixing bowl. Remember to add in the flour slowly and knead at the same time so that you can control the moistness of the dough.

2. Knead dough till desired texture is achieved.

3. Chill in fridge for around 15 minutes.

4. Cut cookie dough into different shapes using your cookie cutter. If you don't have any cookie cutters, just roll dough into mini balls and flatten them.

5. Preheat oven to around 210 degrees celsius.

6. Put the cut cookies into the oven and bake for around 10 minutes/ until the cookies turn a soft yellow brown. Remember to flip cookies to ensure even colouring on both sides.

7. Remove cookies to cool on a cooling rack.

8. Mix the glaze and pour mixture into piping bag. If you don't have a piping bag, you can always make your own by using those plastic sandwich bags and cutting a small little hole at its edge to allow the glaze to flow through. Remember to tie the top of the bag using a rubber band before you squeeze.

9. Drizzle the glaze over the cooled cookies and wait for glaze to solidify.

10. Serve cookies!
