Lemon Cookies with Lemon Glaze

I love eating cookies all time a day.....So I always make a cookies very often...I never leave my cookie box empty....

Each time I used to bake different type of cookie..I love baking cookies.....But after I started my blog, I am spending most of my free time in blogging and now a days my cookie tins are empty..... They were calling me for a refill since a long time.....Its time now!....

Marta of An Italian in the US is conducting a food blog event 'Fresh produce of the month' and this month's fruit is LEMON..... so I have decided to fill in my cookie tin with lemon cookies...

This Lemon Cookies with Lemon Glaze is a simple sugar cookie with lemon rind in it and then to make them more lemony they get a coating of lemon glaze. And then I make a simple decoration with some colored sugar....... For more of my decorated cookie click HERE....
