Ensure the start to a sweet Jewish New Year with these honey-glazed cookies. The addition of lemon zest and juice gives them an exciting flavour twist.
Fat free skim milk
Fresh lemon juice
- Preheat oven to 350°F.
- In a large mixing bowl, beat margarine with an electric mixer on medium-high speed for 30 seconds. Add sugar, zest, baking powder and baking soda; beat until combined, scraping sides of bowl occasionally. Add egg whites, milk and lemon juice; beat until combined. Beat in as much of the flour as you can with the mixer and then stir in remaining flour by hand.
- Drop dough by rounded teaspoonfuls, 2 inches apart, onto 2 ungreased cookie sheets. Bake until edges are lightly browned, about 12 minutes. Transfer cookies to a wire rack and let cool. Repeat with remaining cookie dough.
- Brush tops of each cookie with a touch of honey just before serving and then sprinkle with powdered sugar; stack in a single layer to prevent sticking. Yields 2 cookies per serving.
