These cookies were so easy to make and they helped bring a taste of summer into the house during the winter season.

Iced Tea Cookies

What a refreshing new recipe! The recipe is so easy & I doubled it the first time I made them (NO problems!). The 2nd time I enhanced the "iced tea theme" by substituting lemon extract for the vanilla extract in the glaze. My latest version was: use 1 1/2 t. lemon extract and 1/2 t. mint extract, instead of the vanilla extract in the glaze. These improvements now have the cookie "truly deserving" of its name!
