Limoncello is very diverse in what you can do with it, especially when made with Meyer Lemons, it is a little bit smoother. Cocktails and desserts are among the many things you can make with Limoncello. Meyer Limoncello Cookies use the limoncello in both the cookie and the glaze. There is such a small amount in the glaze that the alcohol doesn’t matter.
The cookies themselves are very buttery and the limoncello gives them a great lemon flavor. They are pretty easy to make and take about 15 minutes start to finish.
This is my grandmother’s recipe for limoncello cookies and she swears that these cookies are Italian, but I’m not sure. I haven’t seen them in the Italian Bakery where they have the most wonderful cookie case. Full of butter cookies, filled horns and everything decadent you can imagine in a cookie! I tweaked the recipe a little for the Meyer Limoncello Cookies, a little more limoncello and a little less sugar than her original recipe.
