Lemon on Lemon Iced Cookies diabetic friendly

  • 2-1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1/3 cup sugar
  • 1 tablespoon grated lemon peel
  • 1 cup cold butter, cubed


  • 1 cup confectioners’ sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon grated lemon peel
  • 4 to 6 teaspoons lemon juice

  • In a large bowl, combine the flour, sugar and lemon peel; cut in butter until crumbly. Transfer to a clean work surface. Knead gently until mixture forms a smooth dough, about 2 minutes (dough will be crumbly but will come together). Divide in half.
  • On a lightly floured surface, roll or pat each portion into an 8-in. x 6-in. rectangle. Cut each into twelve 2-in. squares; cut squares diagonally in half to form twenty-four triangles. Place 1-in. apart on ungreased baking sheets.
  • Bake at 325° for 15-18 minutes or until lightly browned. Remove to wire racks to cool completely.
  • In a small bowl, mix confectioners’ sugar, lemon peel and enough lemon juice to achieve desired consistency. Drizzle over cookies; let stand until set. Yield: 4 dozen.
