    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!

    Quick & Easy

    Granny Beth from Katy, Texas

    Easy to prepare - next time I would add a little cinnamon. The taste was quite different. Pecans made them crunchy. Not sure I will make these again.

    Definitely

    Cathy Luke from Orangevale, CA

    I personally only liked these cookies when they were hot, but others liked them even when they were a day old. Most people couldn't guess that it was made with tea.. it has an unusual taste.
