- In a separate bowl, mix flour, baking powder, baking soda, and salt. Add to creamed mixture. (Dough will be sticky.)
- Scoop 2 level tablespoons of dough and roll to form each cookie. Drop onto ungreased cookie sheets, spacing 2 inches apart.
- Bake until cookies are lightly browned, about 18 minutes. Using a spatula, transfer cookies to a rack and let cool before icing.
- For icing: Place sugar in a bowl. Whisk in butter and lemon juice until smooth. Drizzle icing over tops of cooled cookies, and let icing harden before serving. Makes about 20 cookies.
