Total Time
30 sandwich



3/4 cup Land O Lakes® Butter, softened

3/4 cup powdered sugar

1 large Land O Lakes® Egg

1/2 teaspoon lemon extract

1 2/3 cups Gluten-Free Flour Blend (see below)

1/4 teaspoon ground cloves

1/8 teaspoon salt

Coarse grain sugar


2 1/2 cups powdered sugar

1/4 cup Land O Lakes® Butter, softened

2 tablespoons lemon juice

1/2 teaspoon lemon extract

1 to 2 teaspoons milk

How to make

  1. STEP 1

    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.

  2. STEP 2

    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.

  3. STEP 3

    Heat oven to 350ºF.

  4. STEP 4

    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.

  5. STEP 5

    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.

Tip #1

Gluten-Free Flour Blend: Combine 2 cups rice flour, 2/3 cup potato starch, 1/3 cup tapioca flour and 1 teaspoon xanthan gum. Use appropriate amount for recipe; store remainder in container with tight-fitting lid. Stir before using.

Tip #2

- If necessary, re-shape refrigerated logs before slicing.

Tip #3

This recipe was developed using alternative flours and products labeled as “gluten-free.” The best source for additional information is the ingredient listing on product packaging. Learn about gluten-free baking.
