1 large Land O Lakes® Egg

1 tablespoon freshly grated lemon zest

1/2 teaspoon freshly grated lime zest

2 1/4 cups all-purpose flour

1/4 cup crystallized ginger,  finely chopped

1/2 teaspoon baking powder

1/2 teaspoon salt



1 1/2 cups powdered sugar

1 teaspoon freshly grated lemon zest

1/2 teaspoon freshly grated lime zest

How to make

  1. STEP 1

    Heat oven to 375°F.

    Combine butter and sugar in bowl. Beat at medium speed until creamy. Add egg, 1 tablespoon lemon zest and 1/2 teaspoon lime zest; continue beating until well mixed. Add flour, ginger, baking powder and salt; beat at low speed until well mixed.

  3. STEP 3

    Shape dough into 1 1/4-inch balls with lightly floured hands; roll in sugar. Place 1 inch apart onto ungreased cookie sheets. Flatten to 1 1/2-inch circle with bottom of glass dipped in sugar. Bake 7-10 minutes or until edges just begin to brown. Cool completely.

  4. STEP 4

    Combine powdered sugar, 1 teaspoon lemon zest, 1/2 teaspoon lime zest and enough lemon juice for desired spreading consistency in bowl. Spread about 1 teaspoon glaze over top of each cooled cookie; let stand until glaze is completely set.

The grated zest of one lemon or lime equals about 1 tablespoon.
