How to make it

  • Heat oven to 350 degrees F (175 C).
  • In a mixing bowl, cream butter and sugar until smooth. Add egg yolks; then add vanilla and blend. Add rind, poppy seeds (optional), and sour cream.
  • 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.

    I have an excess of poppy seeds at the moment, so these will be perfect - love the citrus-y flavor in these, and the sour cream is bound to keep them moist and soft...delicious post - thank you!
