Lemon Cookies with Lemon Icing
I made these cookies about a month ago and the recipe and pics are finally up. At first I was looking for a cookie that would compliment my lavender food oil and what goes better with lavender than lemon?
My idea was to make the icing lavender but after paying with 2 batches of icing, and still can’t get the bitterness down, I ended up using a small drop just so it smells like lavender, but still taste like a lemon icing.
You can find the full recipe here at Cooking Melangery.
The only thing I changed is the lemon icing…
For the lemon icing:
- 1 cup confectioners’ sugar, sifted
- 1 ½ – 2 Tbsp. freshly squeezed juice
- 1 drop lavender food oil (I used LorAnn Oils in Lavender)
- 1 toothpick dip worth of Purple gel food colouring
The cookies are nice, fluffy, and a bit on the cakey side. Just the way they should be 🙂
If you make them, let me know what you think. If you use a different flavour icing, what flavour did you use?
