Lemon Wreath Cookies for Holiday Parties

Last night I did some baking for work.  Andy needed to bring some stuff for a potluck and I needed to bring a dessert for my lunch party.

Instead of making my usual rice krispies or chocolate chip cookies, I decided to try something new.  I had saw the Lemon Wreath Cookies in the Martha Stewart Living Magazine.  I really enjoy this magazine as there are a lot of good decorating ideas and interesting recipes to look through.  Most likely, I will not be making all these good foods in them, but it definitely gets the brain going on what ingredients to add when cooking.

According to the recipe, I was suppose to make 6 dozen.  I only ended up with half that amount.  I may have made each cookie a bit on the big side compared to what they had in the pictures.  I think next time I will have to use a smaller amount of dough for each cookie.

Each cookie puffed up pretty well.  I think my technique will get better with practice.  I think i will definitely have to save this recipe to my collection.  :)

 I think the best part about this recipe was the frosting.  It was delicious - Lemon and Confection Sugar!  I think overall the cookie looked great, even without the white sprinkles.
