Lemon Sugar Cookie Ingredients

Lemon Sugar Cookie Dough

When you are ready to bake the cookies, preheat your oven to 350 degrees.  Using a teaspoon, shape dough into evenly sized balls. Place dough balls onto an ungreased cookie sheet being sure to keep them at least 2 to 3 inches apart. Flatten dough balls with the bottom of a small glass. This will give the cookies a uniform circular shape. Bake for 9 to 12 minutes depending on the size.

Let cool 3 minutes on the pan then carefully remove cookies to continue cooling on a plate or rack. While cookies are cooling prepare the frosting. Place all of the frosting ingredients in a small bowl and whisk together until contents are smooth and creamy. When cookies have completely cooled place a thin layer of frosting on top. Enjoy!
