"These cookies were made by a lady in a cookie exchange years ago and they've been a holiday favorite ever since. They're the first to go on the entire cookie tray! They are amazing. I'd eat them year-round if they didn't require a little extra prep time with the fresh lemon!"

  1. Combine butter and sugar for cookies in a large bowl; beat with an electric mixer until fluffy. Mix in cornstarch. Add flour, lemon juice, and lemon peel; beat on low speed until a soft dough forms. Shape dough into a 2-inch diameter log. Wrap in waxed paper and chill in the refrigerator until firm, 1 to 2 hours.
  2. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
  3. Remove dough from refrigerator and cut into 1/4-inch slices. Place cookies on an ungreased cookie sheet.
  4. Bake in the preheated oven until firm, about 10 minutes. Cool on the baking sheet for 1 minute before removing to a wire rack to cool, 8 to 10 minutes more. Repeat with remaining dough.
  5. While cookies are baking, combine powdered sugar, butter, lemon peel, lemon juice, and food coloring for frosting in a large bowl; beat with an electric mixer until smooth. Spread frosting onto cooled cookies. Let frosting dry completely before storing.
