PIN IT FOR LATER!
The weather’s all over the place here in the UK. It’s very warm, yet we are still getting plenty of rain – typical. (I do enjoy the odd thunderstorm we get though!) Rain or not, the hot weather makes me want to bake with citrusy fruits, and bake with them I will. 😉
Today I bring you cookies that are made for summertime, perfect for those hot days – Lemon Cream Cheese Cookies! I’ve topped these cookies with a delicious lemon glaze and a sprinkle of lemon zest for an added burst of citrus in every bite. Love lemon desserts? You need these cookies in your life!
The cream cheese added to these cookies makes them extra soft and moist without actually making them taste like cream cheese. In fact, I find it makes these cookies taste more buttery! Bonus!
Speaking of butter, I always suggest using a good quality butter for the best possible taste. I love using Wyke Farms butters in my baking for its quality and taste.
The lemon glaze takes these cookies to the next level, giving them a burst of sunshine in every bite! It’s super easy to make, too. Simply mix the icing sugar with a few teaspoons of lemon juice until you reach your desired consistency, then drizzle over the cookies. Next step: Devour the cookies!
Wyke Farms provided me with butter to bring you this recipe.
