Christmas Eve is 7 days away, and Santa is going to need some cookies to get through the night. We asked our resident baker (Linda DeHart) for her preferred cookie recipe. She said that maybe Santa wants to break away from the traditional chocolate chip cookies and submitted her favorite Lemon Glaze Cookie recipe. 

Lemon Glaze Cookies




  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees. In a medium bowl, whisk together flour, baking soda, salt, and lemon zest. In a large bowl, using an electric mixer, beat butter and sugar until light and fluffy. Add egg, vanilla, and lemon juice and beat until combined. With mixer on low, beat in flour mixture.

  • Drop dough by heaping tablespoons, 1 inch apart, onto two baking sheets. Bake until edges are golden, 15 to 20 minutes, rotating sheets halfway through. Let cool 2 minutes on sheets, then transfer cookies to a wire rack to cool completely. Spread cookies with Lemon Glaze and let set, about 1 hour.
