Lemon Cream Cheese Cookies
Between the lemon juice, lemon zest, and the cream cheese, these cookies are simply lemon-tastic! (Is that a word? I don’t think so- and I don’t care!) All of that citrus infuses this recipe with an intense lemon flavor, while the cream cheese makes the cookies moist and rich. Besides, once you add the lemon icing, these cookies become utterly irresistible!
Now, speaking of the lemon icing, I chose to follow the recipe and use lemon juice with the confectioners’ sugar. And this gave the icing a powerful lemon flavor- which was fine by me. (The way I see it, if you’re making lemon cookies, why not fully embrace the flavor of lemon?) However, if you’re not a lemon enthusiast, I’d recommend substituting water for the icing recipe, to tone down the fervor of the lemon.Print
