Glazed Lemon Sugar Cookies

The grocery store Smiths near my house is having one of their mega event sales where if you buy 10 items from a certain list of products then you automatically get $5 off at the register and if you use coupons along with that sale, you can get some really good bargains like Krusteaz Sugar Cookie Mixes for .49!  So what to do with the .49 cookie mixes?  Look up recipes on the Krusteaz website and find this one which is so yummy if you like lemons!  They came out pretty flat so I thought they were going to be hard and crunchy but they are soft and chewy!  YUM!

cookie:

1 (15.5 oz) package Krusteaz Sugar Cookie Mix

1/2 cup (1 stick) butter, softened

1 egg

1 tablespoon lemon zest (takes about 1 regular size lemon to get a tablespoon of zest)

1 teaspoon lemon juice (I encourage you to use the juice from a lemon rather than that stuff in the bottle)

lemon glaze:

1 cup powdered sugar

1 tablespoon lemon zest

1 tablespoon lemon juice

1 tablespoon milk

Preheat oven to 375.

For cookies:  Place cookie mix, butter, egg, lemon zest and lemon juice in medium bowl.  Stir until dough forms, hand kneading if necessary.  (I used my mixer and had to add an additional teaspoon of lemon juice to the dough.)  Using rounded tablespoon of dough (or small scoop of dough) for each cookie, place 2″ apart onto ungreased cookie sheet.  Bake 8 – 10 minutes.  Cool cookies completely then spread with lemon glaze.

For lemon glaze:  Place ingredients in small bowl and stir until smooth.

I topped my cookies with Pampered Chef Lemon Sprinkles.

Makes about 36 cookies.
