Lemon Cookies with Icing

Ingredients

For the cookies:
110gr Unsalted butter, at room temperature
120gr Icing sugar
1 Egg, at room temperature
2 tbsp Fresh lemon Juice (from half lemon)
1.5 tbsp Lemon zest (from the whole lemon)
1/2 tsp Vanilla extract
220-250gr Flour
For the icing:
80gr Icing sugar
2 tbsp Fresh Lemon Juice
2 drops Vanilla Essence

Preparation

1
To make the cookies: Cream together butter and icing sugar by using high-speed electric mixer.
2
Add vanilla, egg, fresh lemon juice and lemon zest into the mixture. Continue beating by using mixer until everything is well combined.
3
Slowly sift in flour into the mixture by using rubber spatula. Stop adding flour once the dough doesn't stick to your bowl any more
4
Turn the doughs into mini balls and place them in a baking pan already lined with parchment paper. Gently press each ball with a fork to flatten the cookie.
5
Bake the cookies in a preheated oven (160 degree Celsius) for about 20-25 minutes until the cookies' edges turn golden brown.
6
Let the cookies cool completely before decorating them with the icing.
7
To make the icing: Beat together icing sugar, vanilla essence and lemon juice by using electric mixer. Just use enough lemon juice to make a thick paste or stop adding lemon juice when you start seeing patterns when beating the icing. Put the icing in a piping bag and drizzle it over the cookies. Wait until the icing totally hardens before storing the decorated cookies in a tight plastic container.
