Mrs. Claus' Lemon Cookies have just a hint of lemon and are so festive-looking, they'll add sparkle to your dessert table easily. And since Mrs. Claus made them, you know they're Santa approved!

What You'll Need:
  • 2 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 3/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 2 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/2 cup vegetable oil
  • 1/2 cup milk
  • Pinch of salt
  • 3 teaspoons lemon extract
  • 1 egg
  •  
  • GLAZE
  • 1 1/2 cups sifted confectioners' sugar
  • 2 tablespoons milk
  • 1 teaspoon lemon extract
  • 3 drops yellow food color
What To Do:
  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Coat baking sheets with cooking spray.
     
  2. In a large bowl, combine flour, granulated sugar, baking powder, oil, milk, salt,  lemon extract, and the egg. Roll dough into 1/2-inch balls and place on prepared baking sheets.
     
  3. Bake 12 to 15 minutes, or until cookies are set but not brown. Let sit 5 minutes then transfer to wire rack to cool completely.
     
  4. In a medium bowl, combine glaze ingredients and stir until smooth.
     
  5. Dip tops of cookies in glaze and place on wire rack.
Notes
  • Use assorted sprinkles and decorating sugar to decorate your cookies. Just be sure to do it quickly, before the glaze hardens!
     
  • If you want to decorate your cookies with multiple colors, separate glaze into smaller bowls and mix in food colors one drop at a time, until desired colors are reached.
