I took a regular Snickerdoodle recipe and made them into delightful little lemon cookies.

2 3/4 cups all-purpose flour

2 teaspoons cream of tartar

1 teaspoon baking soda

1/4 teaspoon salt

2 sticks of butter, room temp.

2 eggs

1 1/2 cups sugar

And for

Lemon Glaze

Juice of one lemon

zest of one lemon

3-4 tablespoons of powdered sugar...add as little or as much as you'd like for desired consistency.

Preheat the oven to 400°

Sift together flour, cream of tartar, baking soda, and salt; set aside.
Combine butter and sugar. Beat on medium speed until light and fluffy, a couple minutes. Scrape down sides of bowl. Add eggs, and beat to combine. Add dry ingredients, and beat to combine.

Chill the dough for 20-30 minutes (or overnight), makes it easier to shape into balls.

For LemonDoodles:
Roll into small balls and place on cookie sheet.

Bake for about ten minutes.
Let cool on sheet for a couple minutes, transfer to wire rack and drizzle with Lemon Glaze.

For regular Snickerdoodles

In a separate bowl mix

1/4 cup sugar mixed in a bowl with
2 tablespoons cinnamon

roll balls into mixed cinnamon and sugar then place on cookie sheet.
Bake for about ten minutes.
