When Life Throws You Lemons Make Lemon Cookies!

“When life gives you lemons, find someone who has vodka and throw a party.”
Ran into an old boyfriend – well, not literally. Started reminiscing about our college days and the POS car that he drove then. We laughed until we cried thinking about that damn car. Memorable highlights:
  • Me having to jump out of it while it was still moving so it wouldn't stall. In front of the sorority house. Sorority sisters horrified. Me humiliated by my drop and roll.
  • Fraternity brothers secretly moving it all over campus because they didn't want it in front of the fraternity house.
  • An accident that severely bent the hood but was able to be beaten down and tied with twine.
  • Fraternity brothers stealing a pizza delivery sign and putting it on top while we were at a restaurant celebrating our 1 year anniversary.
So, the next time you and your friends get together to discuss the "lemons" in your life, make these delicious Lemon Cookies. They are fabulous!

Lemon Cookies
Cookies
2 ½ cups all-purpose flour
1 ½ cups white sugar
1 ½ teaspoons cream of tartar
1 teaspoon baking soda
¼ teaspoon salt
1 cup unsalted butter, softened
2 eggs
1 tablespoon freshly grated lemon peel
1 tablespoon freshly squeezed lemon juice

Glaze
2 ½ cups powdered sugar
¼ cup freshly squeezed lemon juice

Heat oven to 400 degrees. Mix the flour, white sugar, cream of tartar, baking soda and salt in a large bowl. In a separate bowl mix the butter, eggs, grated lemon peel and lemon juice. Add to the flour mixture. Beat at low speed until ingredients are well mixed.
Drop dough by rounded teaspoons, 2 inches apart, onto ungreased cookie sheets. Bake 6 to 8 minutes or until edges are lightly browned.
Combine the glaze ingredients and stir until smooth. Frost warm cookies with glaze. Makes 6-7 dozen cookies.
