Glazed Limoncello Cookies


(makes about 24 cookies)

Cookie Dough:

1/2 cup butter 3/4 cup sugar 1 egg 3 tbsp Limoncello (we suggest Dolce Cilento or Long Island Spirits Lemon Sorbetta) 2 tbsp lemon zest 1 lemon, juiced 1 1/2 cup all-purpose flour 1 1/2 tsp baking powder 1/4 tsp salt


1/3 cup Limoncello 1 1/2 cup powdered sugar

Cream together butter and sugar. Add in the Limoncello and the juice of one lemon. Zest the lemon rind and mix well. Slowly add in the dry ingredients and mix gently. Chill the dough for about 30 minutes, while the oven is preheating to 350 degrees. Scoop out the dough onto baking sheets, in rounded tablespoons. Bake for about 10 minutes, or until the edges are starting to turn slightly golden brown. While the cookies are cooling, prepare the glaze, by mixing the powdered sugar with the Limoncello. When the cookies have cooled completely, smooth on the glaze.
