This is an easy way to dress up store bought cookies. These add instant elegance to a platter of tea time cookies.
2 boxes (5.3 oz.) Walkers Shortbread Finger Cookies (8 cookies per box)
1-1/2 cups powdered sugar
2-3 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
zest from 1 lemon
1 tablespoon light corn syrup
yellow sugar sprinkles
In small bowl, whisk together the powdered sugar, 2 tablespoons lemon juice, lemon zest, and corn syrup until smooth. If necessary, add more juice to achieve a honey-like thickness.
Holding one end of a shortbread cookie, dip the other end into the lemon glaze immersing 1/2 to 3/4 of the shortbread. Remove from the glaze and let the excess drip off. Place cookie on parchment or waxed paper. Repeat with remaining cookies. While glaze is still wet, sprinkle with yellow sugar sprinkles. Glaze may pool slightly on cookie bottom--leave it or gently trim it off after glaze is partially hardened. Leave out until glaze completely hardens. Store in airtight container. Keeps for up to 1 week.
