Cookie hearts with lemon glaze

So I am back after the long weekend and hope you all had a nice time and week so far. Yesterday I suddenly got in the mood to make some cookies, so thought of sharing these cute hearts with you. I normally don’t bake cookies often, unless it’s Christmas time and then I love to make all kinds of different cookies. Will share some of the recipes with you later. Wishing every one a nice day and rest week.

Makes 12 large cookie hearts.


- 1 ½ cups unbleached white flour
- ½ cup powdered sugar
- ½ cup cold butter, cubed
- ½ Tsp. Cinnamon
- ½ Tsp. Ginger powder
- 1/8 Tsp. Clove powder
- Pinch salt
- 1 Tbsp. Water
- 1 Tsp. Vanilla essence
- 3-4 Tbsp. Lemon juice
- ¾ cup powdered sugar


Preheat oven to 350 F and line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
In a large bowl combine flour, ½ cup powdered sugar, cinnamon, ginger powder, clove powder and salt. Add the butter on top and incorporate with your hands. Add 1 Tbsp. water and vanilla essence and knead to a smooth dough. Shape into a ball and roll out on a smooth surface with a flour-dusted rolling pin.
Cut out cookies with a heart shaped cookie cutter and place onto the baking sheet. Bake in the oven for about 20-25 minutes. Let cool on a wire rack.
For the glaze mix ¾ cup powdered sugar with lemon juice and whisk until smooth. Brush onto the cookies and let dry.
