Ingredients

Cookie

1 1/4 cups
Land O Lakes® Butter, softened
1 cup
sugar
1
large Land O Lakes® Egg
1 teaspoon
freshly grated lemon zest
1 teaspoon
vanilla
2 1/2 cups
all-purpose flour
2 1/2 teaspoons
baking powder
3/4 teaspoon
ground ginger
1/8 teaspoon
salt

Glaze

2 cups
powdered sugar
1 tablespoon
lemon juice
1 drop
red food color
2 to 3 tablespoons
water
Yellow food color, if desired

Directions

  1. Combine butter and sugar in large bowl. Beat at medium speed, scraping bowl often, until creamy. Add egg, lemon peel and vanilla; continue beating until well mixed. Reduce speed to low; add flour, baking powder, ginger and salt. Beat until well mixed. Cover; refrigerate until firm (at least 1 hour).
  2. Heat oven to 375°F. 
  3. Roll out dough on lightly floured surface, one-half at a time (keeping remaining dough refrigerated), to 1/8-inch thickness. Cut with 3/4-inch heart-shaped cookie cutter. For each cookie, arrange four hearts with points together on ungreased cookie sheet. (Points and sides should overlap slightly.) Bake for 5 to 6 minutes or until set. Cool completely.
  4. Combine powdered sugar, lemon juice and red food color in small bowl; mix well. Stir in water, one teaspoon at a time, until desired glazing consistency. Spread about 1/4 to 1/2 teaspoon glaze on each cooled cookie. Dot yellow food color in center of each cookie with toothpick, if desired. .

Recipe Tips

For easy clean-up, place the cooled cookies on cooling racks over waxed paper-lined counters. Spoon thin lemon glaze in the center of cookies, allowing excess to drip onto the waxed paper. Dip toothpick into yellow food color; dot center of glazed cookies while glaze is still wet. Cookies can be stored when the glaze is dry; discard glaze dripped waxed paper.
