Sparkly Lemon Cookies

Star-shaped edible glitter is an optional embellishment for these lemon cookies. The topping really makes them sparkle, but you could also use coarse sanding sugar or simply leave the cookies glazed.

    These are a little too cake like texture for me. But I love how lemony. I also made another version myself. Using Orange Zest and taking away 1/2 cup flour and adding 1/2 Cup coco powder. Then the orange juice for the glaze. Everyone loved them equal to the lemon.

    I liked the strong lemon flavor of these. I didn't put as much powdered sugar in the lemon juice for the glaze and thought they turned out just okay. There are better lemon cookie recipes. I had a difficult time piping them into the even flat rounds that are pictured as well.

    These were... strange. I followed the recipe exactly and my cookies ended up with a vaguely bready texture. The taste was ok, but not worth the work, in my opinion.
