Glazed Lemon Sugar Cookies

This was a recipe I found online this weekend, when I was looking for something quick to make for a family member who watched our kids kind of spur of the moment, just to say thank you for taking time out of your schedule to help out our family in a time of need. I have several boxes of cookie mix, that I got for FREE so I figured I'd see if I could find some way to use them. This recipe turned out perfect because it also called for lemons, which I had some my mother-in-law gave me from off her tree, that needed to be used. Jeremy says this is now his favorite type of cookie, since he is a fan of lemon. I'm sure they'll be even yummier with homemade sugar cookie dough, although I think next time I make them I might double the amount of lemon juice and zest in the dough. So give these a try!
