Bring on the summer weather and everything lemon! Including these Lemon Poppy Seed Pillows that are light and fluffy cookies just like clouds! And they’re topped with a perfectly tart lemon glaze that will make you want to do nothing with the rest of your day except sit in a chair in your backyard… mmm… Maybe I should be calling these Unproductive Cookies. That’s a bit how I felt after I made them!
Drizzle magic! For cookie drizzles like these I always use a little plastic sandwich bag and snip off a corner, that way I have one less thing to clean! Something I totally forgot about is that you can sprinkle a few extra poppy seeds on top of your dough balls before you bake them! Then you can really see them after they bake! Love my perfectly round dough balls, these cookie/cupcake scoops are a life saver! The black handled (I used or these cookies) and purple are great for cookies and the blue and red handled ones are perfect for cupcakes!
I wasn’t going to admit this… but I ate most of these cookies. Ah! Some how I started and then they were gone! I was supposed to bring them to a church event but they never made it out of my car because I forgot and then the next day I was hungry and they were just starring at me… whoops.
You can also glaze the entire tops of these cookies if you want! I was pretty tempted because the glaze is an awesome pop of flavor. If you do that, you can sprinkle a few poppy seeds on top or a little lemon zest to decorate them!
In case you haven’t read my secret cookie tips post, it’s pretty great! My favorite trick is how to get an egg to room temperature fast!
