Lemon De-Light Cookies

2 Aug

Have I told you that lately I have a “thing” for lemon flavored things? I love lemon flavored cakes, cookies, Italian ice, and even lemonade :-D. In my search for a snack to appease my appetite, I came a across the most delicious sounding recipe. Let’s get straight to the point.

Lemon De-Light Cookies (Glazed)

2 Cups All-Purpose Flour
2 Cups Mashed Potato Flakes
1 Cup Sugar
1 Cup Firmly Packed Brown Sugar
½ – ¾ Cup Finely Chopped Nuts (your choice)
1 Tsp Baking Soda
¾ Cup Margarine or Butter, Melted
1 Tsp Grated Lemon Peel
2 Eggs
¼ Cup Sugar

Heat oven to 350°F. In large bowl combine all ingredients except for ¼ cup of sugar; blend well. (Mixture will be crumbly.) Firmly press into 1-inch balls; roll in ¼ cup of sugar. Place 2 inches apart on ungreased cookie sheets.

Bake for 9-12 minutes or until golden brown. Cool 1 minute; remove from cookie sheets, and serve.

Makes 6 dozen Cookies

* If you would like, for added lemon flavor and a little bit of glaze, combine 1 ½ cups of confectioners’ sugar (sifted) and 4 tablespoons of freshly squeezed lemon juice, and drizzle over cookies when cookies are still warm.*

Mmm take a bite out of that!
