Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome lemon cookies I made these for the holidays. I had to adjust the recipe because it says 1/2 + 2 Tbsps. butter softened but it should read 1/2 cup softened butter (for the cookie part of the recipe) and the 2 Tbsp. butter should be melted (needed for the icing part of the recipe). The 1 Tbsp. water goes with the melted butter for the icing. Anyway, I made them two different batch filled with my favorite seedless red raspberry jelly and the other batch unfilled but glazed with the icing. Success! They are awesome. Just ask my family.
