These are butter cookies with lemon zest frosting.

They melt in your mouth and are just absolutely…


As a warning, they are a little time consuming because it requires some refrigeration and such (I spent a whole afternoon making them in between watching Funny Face with Audrey Hepburn), but they are SO worth it.

Butter Cookies

1 cup butter, softened to room temperature (not overly soft or melted!)
1/2 cup powdered sugar
1 1/4 cups flour
3/4 cup cornstarch

Cream butter and sugar till smooth. Stir in flour and cornstarch. Mix well, then cover and chill for at least an hour. Roll into 1″ balls and place on parchment lined cookie sheets. Bake at 325° for about 15-18 minutes. Cool completely, then frost with lemon cream cheese frosting.

Lemon Cream Cheese Frosting

2 Tbsp soft butter
3 oz cream cheese, softened to room temperature
dash salt
1 Tbsp lemon zest
2 1/2 cups powdered sugar (more or less)
Beat butter, cream cheese, and salt till smooth and creamy. Add lemon zest and enough powdered sugar to make a spreadable frosting. Frost the tops of the cookies.

-Makes about 3 dozen cookies
I got the recipe from here:

Go. Bake. Enjoy!
