Lemon + Thyme Shortbread Cookies

Lemony, buttery, simple. Small twist on a favorite, and they were definitely a hit!

You’ll need:

Processed with VSCO with a6 preset

  1. Whisk lemon zest, flour, thyme, and salt in a small bowl. Set aside
  2. Using a mixer, beat the butter and confectioners sugar until blended and smooth. Beat in the vanilla extract and lemon juice. Carefully add the flour mixture and mix well until combined. Round the dough into a ball and wrap in plastic. Chill for 1 hour.
  3. Preheat oven to 325 degrees F. Spray a large baking pan or lay down parchment paper and set aside.
  4. Sprinkle some flour on your flat surface and roll out the dough until it’s about 1/4 inch thick. Cut into shape of your choice using a lightly floured cookie cutter. Bake for about 10 minutes or until slightly brown. Remove cookies from oven and set on cooling rack.
  5. While cooling, whip up your icing by using about 1-2 cup of confectioners sugar + fresh lemon juice. I eyed it out, but mix until desired consistency.
  6. Once completely cool, take a spoon and drizzle icing over cookies as thick or thin as you’d like.
  7. Garnish with thyme for presentation + enjoy!

Yields: 20 cookies

  • I’m back👋Spent much needed time offline to restructure my goals and focus on work and family. I feel mentally refreshed and more present in the moment which was one of the biggest things I was struggling with. I needed to take a step back and enjoy what was in front of me instead of always looking at my next move. Im grateful for all of the opportunity this year has given me and I feel all of the clarity, light and success coming in 2019!✨💫
