Lemon Poppy Cookies

I’m still on my lemon kick!
Callye from Sweet Sugar Belle makes amazing cookies.

As soon as I saw her Lemon Poppy Seed Cut Out Cookies, I knew there was only one thing to do.

Buy Poppyseeds… and I did, that very same day.

They have patiently waiting to be used.

After discussing our mutual LOVE for lemon, and scones! I had to make them.

I had some left over lemon glaze from the Lemon Scones I made and hoped it would be enough to ice these and save me some time…..as luck would have it, I had just enough. I didn’t flood them all in. I flooded some and just put an outline of icing on the others. I really liked that you could see the poppy seeds, they didn’t need to be all covered up!

      yes, google docs works well. I hope to have a direct printable link up on the recipes shortly it’s been in the works for some time, along with a redesign :)
      Egg shapes sound great for Easter!

    How thick do you roll out the cookies for them to cook in 7-9 minutes? Does the icing dry hard enough to stack, pack and ship the cookies?

    • 15

      I roll my cookies to 1/4 inch. I use two wooden dowels now, I didn’t used to and did a lot of guessing. Yes the icing dries hard to stack I’d wait 24 hours before stacking to wrap and ship them, so the moisture in the icing is completely dried out. The cookies won’t be stale if you leave them on a cookie sheet iced, overnight.

    is the icing on the outline the same kind of glaze as the filler just piped on?
