Glazed Lemon Sour Cream Cookies
Glazed Lemon Sour Cream Cookies are such a brightly flavored and super soft cookie! They’re a not your traditional Christmas cookie which makes them a perfect Christmas cookie. Everyone loves a new addition at the cookie exchange.
Sour Cream Cookies with Fresh Lemon Flavor
When I think of lemon I usually think more of a spring or summer cookie but why not brighten up a cold winter with these blissful cookies?
It’s easy to make them fitting for the season, just add Christmas color sprinkles. Oh and some yellow stars because their fun too.
I absolutely loves these cookies! They are similar to a ricotta cookie or a soft sugar cookie which is part of the reason why I love them so much.
I also really love that glaze. A frosted or iced cookie is just too good to resist!
Plus I love how a glaze or icing is the quickest and easiest way possible to frost cookies. You could even have the kids do it.

How to Make Lemon Sour Cream Cookies

- Prepare baking sheets then drop dough onto baking sheets by rounded tablespoon.
- Bake then cool.
- Cover with glaze and let set.
This is a cookie people will request again and again. They are anything but boring and they’re perfectly delicious!
As I mentioned in the recipe be sure you don’t use a dark cookie sheet for these – you shouldn’t be using dark cookie sheets for your cookies anyway but especially not a with a wetter dough like so.
They’ll get golden brown even without using a dark sheet (definitely not burnt brown but nice and toasty and golden brown), so get yourself some standard uncoated aluminum cookie sheets for Christmas if you don’t already own some :).
Hope you enjoy this big batch of lemony cookies and find some people to share with. They’re melt-in-your-mouth dreamy!
