Ingredients

Cookies:

4 ounces butter

1 lemon, zested

1/2 cup granulated sugar

1/2 cup brown sugar

1 egg

1 teaspoon lemon juice

1/4 cup dried tart cherries, finely chopped

1 3/4 cup flour

1/2 cup almond flour

1/2 teaspoon baking soda

1 1/2 teaspoons chile powder

1/2 teaspoon salt

Lemon Glaze:

2 cups powdered sugar

1 tablespoon lemon juice

Directions

  1. For the cookies: Cream the butter, lemon zest, and sugars until light and fluffy. Slowly add the egg and lemon juice. Add the cherries. In another bowl, mix together the flours, baking soda, chile powder, and salt. Add to the butter mixture. Roll in parchment paper to a diameter of 3/4-inch. Chill well (or freeze).
