I love all things lemon. The lemon zest in these Lemon Shortbread Cookies really enhances the citrus flavor. Shortbread cookies have a slightly crunchy texture and they aren’t super sweet so the icing works well on them.
Try making them a little fancier by rolling the dough in colored sprinkles before refrigerating the dough log to give a colorful edge to the cookies.
To keep the cookies from spreading when they cook, make sure your cookie dough is cold.
