Citrus & Sunshine Cookie Bites

Lovely and lemony, these darling little cookies melt in your mouth like butter on a hot summer day. (And speaking of butter, do not worry one bit about how much butter is in this recipe. Butter is a natural substance. Butter is the color of sunshine. Butter provides nutrients. Butter is bliss.)


Cookie Ingredients:

1 cup butter, softened 

⅓ cup powdered sugar

⅔ cup cornstarch

1 cup flour


Cookie Directions:

  1. Preheat oven to 325 degrees. 
  2. Cream butter and sugar until it’s as light as a summer breeze.
  3. Whisk together the cornstarch and flour, then add  butter mixture and blend thoroughly. 
  4. Drop by teaspoonfuls onto ungreased cookie sheet and bake for 15-20 minutes. 
  5. Cool, then frost.


Frosting Ingredients:

4 tbsp. butter, softened

2 cups powdered sugar

2 tbsp. fresh lemon juice

Lemon zest to taste 


Frosting Directions:

Cream the butter. Beat in the sugar alternately with the lemon juice (“Squeeze the day!”) and zest (“You’re the zest!”), beginning and ending with the sugar. Spread frosting on cookies.

WARNING: Partaking these cookies may cause symptoms of euphoria, including (but not limited to) extreme bursts of happiness, a sudden feeling of well-being, and the hearing of angels singing.
