"The tradition of Italian cooking is that of the matriarch. This is the cooking of grandma. She didn't waste time thinking too much about the celery. She got the best celery she could and then she dealt with it."--Mario Batali

Directions:
1. With 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.

2. Divide the dough in half and shape into a 1 inch diameter logs. Wrap in wax paper and refrigerate until firm, about 30 minutes.

3. Heat oven to 350F. Slice the logs into ⅜ inch thick pieces and space them 1 inches apart on parchment lined baking sheets. Bake until lightly golden, 16 to 20 minutes. Let cool on the baking sheets for 5 minutes, then transfer to cooling racks to cool completely.

4. In a small bowl, whisk together the powdered 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.
