We're sorry we can't bring you cookies in person, but here is a recipe that you can make at home.

Ingredients for the cookies:

  • 1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1 tablespoon poppy seeds
  • 1/2 cup butter (room temperature)
  • 2/3 cup of granulated sugar
  • Zest of two large lemons (about 8 tablespoons)
  • 1 large egg


Ingredients for the glaze:

  • 1 cup confectioners' sugar
  • 2-3 tablespoons freshly squeezed lemon juice



Remove zest from lemons; set aside lemons and zest.

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Line two baking sheets with parchment paper.

Mix flour, baking powder, salt and poppy seeds in a small bowl; set aside.

In a separate bowl, cream butter and sugar together until fluffy.

Mix in lemon zest and egg. Add dry ingredients.

Make two-inch balls of dough and place on cookie sheets, about two inches apart .

Bake until just beginning to brown on edges, about 10 minutes; allow to cool.

Juice a lemon.

In a clean bowl, slowly whisk lemon juice into confectioners' sugar until the right consistency for a glaze.

Drizzle glaze on cookies. Let set before serving.
