The boys have four days of school left and per usual, every day is packed full of activities and fun. I’m spending a good portion of each day at the school, helping out, going on field trips, and attending awards ceremonies and such.

Thankfully, there is still time to make cookies in my busy schedule…especially when they’re these Glazed Lemon Poppy Seed Cookies. Unreal you guys.

I am all about lemon recipes during the summer. That bright yellow color and irresistible tartness just call to me like nothing else. I’m pretty lucky I guess that my family loves lemon as much as I do…that way I don’t have to eat them ALL :)

This recipe is super simple and unlike many of my other cookie recipes, requires no refrigeration. It’s all about quickly mixing, scooping and baking. Just that easy. I topped these cookies with a lemon glaze that is part sweet part tart and all awesome. It’s the perfect addition to these soft and tasty cookies.

  4. My family and I just love anything lemony, I cannot wait to make these. They look so yummy! Thanks!!!!

  5. Made these yesterday. they came out really yummy but not quite lemony as I expected. they have a nice sugar cookie texture. so I made a lemon glaze to get that lemony taste and they turned out so good.
    Thanks for sharing!

    Oh yum, another favorite combination. Thank you for the great recipes.

  8. Lemon flavor is my favorite, I always have a cup of lemon tea before bed but never had lemon flavor cookies. I guess i can mix the tea with cookies now ;) I’m determined to try this recipe the following weekend but I’m already sure it will turn out great as the pictures.
