Lemon Meltaways

A melt in your mouth cookie bursting with lemon flavor!

This post is sponsored by AE Dairy, but all opinions are my own.

It’s Spring, which means we are right in the thick of warmer days, lots of rain and flowers finding their way back to us – which in my opinion always screams citrus flavors!

In this case, lemonade.

After the dreary days of winter, bringing fresh citrus flavors back into our foods is always fun. Today’s new dessert is a classic cookie I’ve perfected over the years for the Christmas holiday (see it here), but instead this time I made them summery.

They are packed with flavor and I’m not joking around when I say they literally “melt in your mouth”.

AE Dairy and I wanted to find a sweet way to tuck their delicious Classic Lemonade into a new and exciting recipe.

These Lemon Meltaway cookies are tender, delicate, and bursting with lemon flavor – both in using fresh lemon zest and AE Dairy’s Classic Lemonade.

And have I mentioned they are simple to make?

This recipe comes together quick – just 6 ingredients for the cookie dough, plus no chilling or special tricks required. It makes a small batch (trust me, that’s good as you’ll want to eat them ALL), around 18 cookies.

They are so darn pretty on a platter. Perfect for Mother’s Day, graduations, teas, or really anyone who loves lemon.

The simple icing is made of powdered sugar, almond extract (you can use vanilla if you prefer) and AE Dairy Classic Lemonade. Plus, a little extra lemon zest on top to make them extra cute if you like!

Summertime is packed into every sip of AE Dairy’s Classic Lemonade. Made with fresh lemons with the perfect touch of sweetness for the right balance – you’ll be drinking a glass while baking these cookies!

Just look at how pretty they are!

My first batch lasted 24 hours in our house. Granted I have two teenagers + one always hungry 10-year-old, so I wasn’t surprised. They quickly asked when I’ll be making them again.

I can’t wait to see you guys make these Lemon Meltaways! Grab some AE Dairy Classic Lemonade at the store, pour a glass and get baking.
