Using a mixer, beat the butter and the powdered sugar together until smooth,  then gently stir in the flour, cornstarch, and lemon zest and vanilla.

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.  Line a cookie sheet with parchment paper.

Drop cookies onto prepared cookie sheet and bake for 9-11 min or until edges start to slightly brown.

2 Tablespoons fresh squeezed lemon juice

2 teaspoons lemon zest

Whisk all ingredients together. Once cookies have completely cooled, dip the top of the cookie into the frosting.  Place on a clean parchment lined baking sheet and place in refrigerator.  Cookies need about 30 minutes to set.
