How To Make ginger lemon delights

  • 1
    Preheat oven to 375.
  • 2
    Line a baking sheet with foil and set aside.
  • 3
    In the bowl of a stand mixer (or a large bowl), combine the cookie ingredients until very soft dough forms. It will be sticky, so don't worry about that.
  • 4
    Use a medium cookie scoop or tablespoon to scoop the dough into the prepared baking sheet, 2 inches apart, they spread a good bit so give them room.
  • 5
    Bake for 8-10 minutes or until edges are light golden brown and the cookies are just set.
  • 6
    Cool for 2 minutes on the baking sheet, then remove to cooling racks to cool completely, about 30 minutes.
  • 7
    Meanwhile, stir together the powdered sugar, lemon zest and lemon juice until smooth.
  • 8
    When the cookies have cooled, spread a small amount of glaze on each cookie and top with a few pieces of the cystallized ginger.
  • 9
    Allow the glaze to firm up, then store in an airtight container.
