“Love Me Knot Icing” 

 

2 cups sifted confectioner sugar

2 teaspoons lemon extract

3 Tablespoons milk 

 

Combine all ingrediants. Dip each cookie and place on rack to dry. With extra icing, color it yellow. Use your finger to dip into icing and then dot the center of each cookie to make the it yellow. Alllow to dry before storing away. 

**I’ve been making these cookies for over 35 years, I’m not sure where I got the recipe. They are a little time consuming but so worth the time. Great cookies for dipping. You can also color the center of the cookies different colors (which look pretty), but I prefer the yellow center.
