Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Line cookie sheet with parchment paper.
  2. In a mixing bowl beat sugar, vanilla, lemon peel and 6 tablespoons of butter with an electric mixer until well blended. Add eggs one at a time, beating well after each addition. Continue to beat for 1 minute.
  3. Stir in flour and baking powder (will be a soft, sticky dough). Spoon dough into a pastry bag fitted with a 3/8-inch round tip. Pipe 2-inch diameter rings onto the prepared cookie sheet.
  4. With moistened fingertips, press ends of each ring together to form a smooth ring.
  5. Bake about 20 minutes or until golden brown.
  6. To make icing: Melt 1 tablespoon of butter over low heat. Add sugar, water, lemon juice and vanilla and whisk until sugar melts and mixture is heated through. Thin with more water if icing is too thick to brush.
  7. Remove cookies from oven and immediately brush warm icing over hot cookies. Cool iced cookies on sheet for 2 minutes. Transfer to a rack and cool completely.

Great Recipe! Very similar to what you would find in a bakery. My only suggestion would be to put the dough in a ziploc bag and snip off the tip (instead of using a pastry bag).

The first reviewer is right: a cookie press makes the gooey dough simple to handle and the cookies don't need 20 minutes to bake. These are very Italian cookies, not overly sweet, with a subtl...

This is a good recipe for anginetti.... very sticky though and hard to work with.... putting in fridge to harden up for a couple hours makes dough easier to work with and improves cookie.... you...

These cookies were wonderful and tasted just like the ones my grandmother used to make. Her recipe called for lemon extract so I added a little to the dough. I also used a cookie press which ma...

These little gems were soo quick tomake, they were done in between making a pizza and cooking spaghetti marinara with minimal time and mess. I didnt have a bakers piping bag however I made th...

Love this recipe. I did add lemon zest to the icing to make it a bit more lemony. My one mistake was I made the cookies a bit on the small side. Next time I'll make them bigger just like you see...

I loved the hint of lemon in these. These were a bit involved for me, but everyone seemed to like them.
