How to make it

  • Preheat oven to 350 F.
  • Line a baking sheet with silicon sheets, or parchment paper.
  • In a large mixing bowl, beat together the sugar, vanilla, lemon peel and 6 tablespoons of butter with an electric mixer until well blended.
  • Add the eggs one at a time, beating well after each addition. Continue to beat for 1 minute.
  • Stir in flour and baking powder and blend just until mixed.
  • The dough should be soft and sticky.
  • Spoon dough into a pastry bag fitted with a 3/8-inch round tip. Pipe 2-inch diameter rings onto the prepared baking sheets.
  • With wet fingertips, press the ends of each ring together to form a smooth ring.
  • Bake about 20 minutes or until light golden brown.
  • To make the icing

  • Melt 1 tablespoon of butter over low heat.
  • Add the sugar, water, and lemon juice and whisk until the sugar melts and the mixture is heated through.
  • If icing is too thick to brush easily, add more water to thin.
  • Remove the cookies from the oven and immediately brush warm icing over the hot cookies.
  • Sprinkle with colored sprinkle if using. Cool iced cookies for a few minutes, and then transfer them to wire racks to cool completely. Store in an airtight container.
