TIPS
This recipe makes 2 dozen cookies but can easily be doubled or tripled. If you’re not following a gluten free diet substitute (1 ½ cups all-purpose flour, 1 tsp. baking powder & 1/8 tsp. salt). The glaze should have the consistency of melted ice cream. If it’s too thick add more lemon juice, if it’s too thin add more of the sugar.
