Lemon Meltaway Cookies

Spring is on its way and that means we can start pulling out our citrus recipes! I am a huge fan of citrus. In food form and scent form, so this recipe was right up my alley. As a kid my mother would buy a box of powdered lemon cookies that I absolutely adored. I'm not sure they make them anymore, I haven't seen them in years, so when I found this recipe in my Southern Living magazine I knew I had to make them! These cookies are extra zesty and soft, not crunchy. They should be stored in an air tight container and the recipe yields about two dozen small cookies.


  • 3/4 cup plus 2 Tbsp. butter, softened
  • 1 1/2 cups powdered sugar, divided
  • 1 tablespoon lemon zest
  • 3 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
  • 1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1/4 cup cornstarch
  • 1/4 teaspoon table salt

  1. 1. Beat butter at medium speed with a heavy-duty electric stand mixer until creamy. Add 1/2 cup powdered sugar; beat at medium speed until light and fluffy. Stir in zest and juice. Whisk together flour and next 2 ingredients. Gradually add flour mixture to butter mixture, beating at low speed just until blended. Cover and chill 1 hour.
  1. 2. Preheat oven to 350°. Drop dough by level spoonfuls 2 inches apart onto parchment paper-lined baking sheets, using a 1-inch cookie scoop.
  1. 3. Bake at 350° for 13 minutes or until lightly browned around edges. Cool on baking sheets 5 minutes.
  1. 4. Toss together warm cookies and remaining 1 cup powdered sugar in a small bowl.

  1. These sound delicious! How much butter did you use?

    1. I totally left off the butter in the ingredients list, whoop! Updated now :) I used 3/4 cup plus 2 Tbsp.

  2. Hi, could anyone tell me the equivalent to cups in lbs and ozs or grams please? I can never work it out correctly :(

  3. One of the most important components in running a successful business is having a reliable Business Phone Service system. With the technology available today, the list of business communications applications seems endless.

  4. Baking is more fun! I cook a lot, but I must say the sweets get all the oohs and ahhs.

  5. They look nice. Well done.

    Thank you. Love love, Andrew. Bye.

    I was a HIV-AIDS patient and I got it from cheating on my wife. It was sort of a payback but a week later I was told by a friend that the person who I cheated with had the HIV-AIDS virus and did not tell me. I was so stupid by not using a condom I thought since he was an old school friend he was trustworthy. But I was wrong. I cried and cried. Two days later, I got a phone call from my friend and he told me about a person who is known by another friend, who can help me. I could not let my wife know what I was going through. I finally got his email address: oseremenspelltemple@gmail.com and I emailed this man my story and he replied me immediately saying i should be calm and told me that everything will be OK. I could not come to terms with what I was hearing but then I concluded it did not matter because I was so broken I just needed help. I was going out of my mind literally. I was confused with what he was telling me, but I listened. He told me about some materials i need to buy that he needed to cast the spell and I said OK. I bought the materials to him, I sent down my picture to him and my positive result sheet and he replied me that i am going to be negative under 3days. I message Him every 2hours for 2day and I knew he thought that I was crazy but I did care I needed a shoulder. Behold, the third day he messaged me i should go for a test that i will be negative. My marriage could be broken because of a stupid mistake and my life was on the line. I remembered when I was going to get the results of my re-test I called him up again and told him that I was going to get my results today and his reply was “so" and that everything will be as he explained. I knew then that he was getting tired of me calling him, maybe I was wrong. Well I got my results and the first person I called was him - again. As he said hello I started to cry and cry. I could not believe it. I was given a second chance in life.This man is a great spiritual HIV/AIDS healer, his healing spell on aids healing is very powerful .please brothers and sister, contact Dr Ose oseremenspelltemple@gmail.com

  7. Along with the international ones, there are also hundreds of local churches that help pay bills. These organizations do not only help the financially-unstable people and their families but also support the strangers who are seeking help.
