Bake them for 15-20 minutes at 350ยบ F or until the bottoms are brown. Allow them to cool completely before you frost them.

Add lemon juice and extract to the confectionary sugar. Slowly add in the milk until all confectionary sugar is mixed in and frosting is smooth. It should not be too thin or it will drip off the cookies and dry transparent. The frosting should be thick enough so that it sits on the top of the cookie.
