Ingredients

Cookies

Glaze

  • 1 cup powdered sugar
  • 1 teaspoon grated lemon peel
  • 3 tablespoons lemon juice

Garnish

  • Grated lemon peel, if desired

Steps

  • 1
    Heat oven to 350°F (325°F for dark or nonstick pans). Spray bottoms and sides of two 8-inch round cake pans with baking spray with flour, or line with foil.
  • 2
    In large bowl, beat cake mix, butter, 2 tablespoons lemon peel and the egg with electric mixer on low speed until crumbly. Beat on medium speed until dough forms. Press half of dough in each pan.
  • 3
    Bake 17 to 23 minutes or until edges are light golden brown. Cool 10 minutes.
  • 4
    In small bowl, mix glaze ingredients until smooth. Spoon glaze over warm shortbread; spread to edges of pans. Cool completely, about 50 minutes. Garnish with lemon peel. Cut each shortbread into 12 wedges. Store loosely covered.

Tips from the Betty Crocker Kitchens

  • tip 1
    Garnish with grated lemon peel or lemon peel strips.
  • tip 2
    When grating lemon peel, be sure to grate only the yellow part of the skin. The white part, or pith, is very bitter.
