Glazed Lemon Sugar Cookies Recipe

Yield: 12 cookies

Prep time: 13 minutes

Cook time: 12 minutes

Total time: 25 minutes


For the Lemon sugar Cookies: 

  • 1 pouch Maja Sugar Cookie Mix 
  • 6 tbsp butter (or Vegan butter if preferred)
  • 2-3 tbsp milk
  • 1 tsp lemon extract

For the Lemon glaze & floral decoration:

  • 2 cups powdered sugar 
  • 3-4 tbsp milk 
  • ¼ tsp lemon extract
  • Optional: Natural food dye (Ex. mango powder for yellow or hibiscus flower for pink/purple)
  • Optional: Dried or fresh edible flowers for decoration


Begin by preheating the oven to 325° Fahrenheit and line a baking sheet with parchment paper. Then you’ll want to prepare the yogurt filling. Combine the Greek yogurt, cream cheese, powdered sugar, and vanilla in a small bowl and beat with a hand mixer until smooth. Once the consistency looks right, set it aside until the cookie dough is ready.  

To begin the cookies, add the butter and milk into a medium-sized bowl and beat on low until it becomes creamy. Slowly add in the vanilla and baking mix and beat until well combined. Take a small spoonful of dough (about 1 ½ tsp) and roll it into a ball. Line the baking sheet with the dough balls and press your thumb into each cookie to make an indent on the top. Add a small amount of the yogurt filling into the indent of each cookie until it is even on the top. Be sure you don’t overfill! 

Bake the cookies for about 9-10 minutes. Once the cookies have cooled completely, add the matcha powder on top to garnish! Store these cookies in the fridge in an airtight container for up to 3 days.
