How to Make Ginger Lemon Delights

Step-by-Step

  • 1Preheat oven to 375.
  • 2Line a baking sheet with foil and set aside.
  • 3In 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.
  • 4Use 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.
  • 5Bake for 8-10 minutes or until edges are light golden brown and the cookies are just set.
  • 6Cool for 2 minutes on the baking sheet, then remove to cooling racks to cool completely, about 30 minutes.
  • 7Meanwhile, stir together the powdered sugar, lemon zest and lemon juice until smooth.
  • 8When the cookies have cooled, spread a small amount of glaze on each cookie and top with a few pieces of the cystallized ginger.
  • 9Allow the glaze to firm up, then store in an airtight container.
