Ingredients:  
3/4 cup (1 1/2 sticks) unsalted butter, at room temperature
3/4 cup granulated sugar
2 large egg yolks
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/4 teaspoon kosher salt
2 cups all-purpose flour
1 cup confectionersí sugar
2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice (more if necessary)
1 teaspoon grated lemon zest (zest your lemon before you juice it)

Directions:
Directions:
With an electric mixer, beat the butter and granulated sugar until fluffy. Add the egg yolks, vanilla, and salt and beat to combine.Gradually add the flour, mixing until just incorporated. Divide the dough in half and shape into 1 1/4 inch diameter logs. Wrap in wax paper and refrigerate until firm, about 30 minutes.

Heat oven to 350 degrees. Slice the logs into 3/8 inch thick pieces and space them 1 1/2 inches apart on parchment-lined baking sheets. Bake until lightly golden, 16-20 minutes. Let cool on the baking sheets for 5 minutes, then transfer to cooling racks to cool completely.

In a small bowl, whisk together the confectionersí sugar, lemon juice, and zest until it forms a thick but pourable glaze (add more lemon juice if necessary). Dip the top of each cookie into the glaze and let set, about 15 minutes.
