These melt-in-your-mouth gluten-free cookies combine refreshing lemon with aromatic cloves, creating a memorable treat.
Combine 3/4 cup butter and 3/4 cup powdered sugar in bowl; beat at medium speed until creamy. Add egg and 1/2 teaspoon lemon extract; continue beating until combined. Add gluten-free flour blend, cloves and salt; beat at low speed until well mixed.
Divide dough in half; on surface sprinkled lightly with gluten-free flour blend, shape each half into 8-inch log, flouring hands with gluten-free flour blend, if necessary. Wrap each log in plastic food wrap. Refrigerate at least 2 hours or until firm.
Heat oven to 350ºF.
Cut logs into 1/4-inch slices. Place 1 inch apart onto ungreased cookie sheets. Sprinkle half of cookies with coarse grain sugar. Bake 8-10 minutes or until edges are lightly browned. Cool completely.
Combine all filling ingredients in bowl, adding enough milk for desired spreading consistency. Beat on low speed until well mixed. Spread about 2 teaspoons filling onto bottom-side of each cookie without sugar. Top with remaining cookies, sugar-side up.

I baked these cookies for 13 minutes and it was probably not enough. They were pale and very fragile. I am thinking that the dough should have been frozen before being sliced ad baked. Also, if I try them again, may use shortening for half of the butter. I think the cookie needs to be crisper. Overall, the favor is fantastic so may try them with a few changes. It's a shame that the recipe isn't perfect given it as tested in the LOL kitchens!
These cookies taste like lemonade...the filling was so delicious! Super easy. I might just keep a roll of dough on hand at all times! Great summer treat.
