Some of the best desserts have a sweet and savory flavor and cookies are a great example of where this statement comes true. Some of the most classic cookies have the great mixture of both sweet and savory and the classic butter cookie is one that is a crowd favorite. With the addition of the lemon and thyme brings the cookie to a new level of deliciousness. The replacement of the granulated sugar for confectioners sugar or powdered sugar makes the cookie have a great light crumb to them. Check out the recipe below.
In a large mixing bowl, beat the butter and powdered sugar until smooth and light in color, about 2-3 minutes. Add the lemon juice and zest along with the thyme, continue mixing until combined.
Slowly add the flour and salt and mix just until a dough ball is formed. Scrape down the sides when needed.
Using a 1” cookie scoop place 12 cookies on a lined sheet pan. Lightly press down on the top until you have a uniform thickness through the whole cookie, about ¾” thick. Bake at 350 degrees for 12-15 minutes until the bottoms are light brown. Let the cookies cool on sheet pans for 2 minutes then transfer to cooling rack. Let the cookies cool completely.
To make the glaze, add all of the ingredients into a small mixing bowl then whisk together until smooth.
Spread a thin coat over all of the cooled cookies and garnish with the lemon zest and thyme. Let the glaze set then move to a storage container.
