Lemon Drop Cookies

These cookies take a little extra effort, but they are SO worth it! The little crunch of crushed lemon drops makes them taste very special. Recipe from Andrea...
Mix in a large bowl:
     1 1/2 cups shortening (can sub. butter)
     2 cups sugar
     3 eggs
     1 tsp. lemon extract
     1 tsp. lemon zest
     2 tsp. vanilla
     1 1/2 tsp. baking powder
     1 1/2 tsp. baking soda
     1 tsp. salt
     4 cups flour
Stir in:
     1 (6 oz.) pkg. lemon drops, crushed with a hammer

Roll into balls and place on a cookie sheet lined with parchment paper or sprayed with non-stick cooking spray.  Bake for 10-12 minutes at 350° F. Let cookies cool on cookie sheet for 2 minutes, then brush with glaze. Remove immediately to cooling rack. Makes 6 dozen cookies.

     1 cup powdered sugar
     Juice of 1 lemon (or use Minute Maid frozen lemon juice, thawed)
