  • ¾ cup sugar
  • 1 egg, beaten
  • ⅓ cup full fat sour cream

  • 2 tsp fresh lemon juice

  9. Place on parchment or foil lined baking sheet.
  10. Bake at 375 degrees for 5 to 6 minutes or until edges are firm and very lightly browned (these will not turn golden, they should still be white in color)
  11. Slide parchment paper with cookies attached onto counter top to cool for 5 minutes.

  4. The icing needs to be used immediately, as it hardens.
  5. Place in a piping bag fitted with a fine tip.
  6. Trace the outer edge of the cookie with the icing
  7. “Flood” the inside of the cookies with icing (go back and forth with the icing until it is mostly covered with icing)
  8. Use a toothpick or an offset spatula to smooth out the icing and pop any air bubbles.
  9. Allow to harden for at least 2 hours.
  10. Store in an airtight container.
