ANNOUNCING: Change is part of life, and apparently, it's part of blogging, too. As of September 5, 2013, I'm merging The Virtual Goody Plate with Disco Mom Takes on the World and whatever else may henceforth spill from my fingertips (and kitchen), into one great new blog. I hope you'll join me there in exclaiming, "THIS IS AWESOMELAND."

VGP #9 Lemon-Honey Drop Cookies

OK, when Ed saw the name of these cookies he said it sounded like a cough drop. But what could be more appropriate for the first month of winter? Then I made them and we both agreed these do not taste like medicine. The honey is present but subtle, the lemon is bright and cheery. It's like a drop of sunshine borrowed from summer. Lovely with a cuppa.

1/2 cup granulated sugar
7 T butter, softened
2 tsp grated lemon rind
1/3 cup honey
1 tsp lemon extract
1 large egg
1 3/4 cups all-purpose flour
1 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp salt
1/4 cup plain fat-free yogurt
Cooking spray
1 cup powdered sugar
2 T fresh lemon juice
2 tsp grated lemon rind

1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

2. Beat first 3 ingredients with a mixer at medium speed until light and fluffy. Add honey, extract, and egg; beat until well-blended. Lightly spoon flour into dry measuring cups; level with a knife. Combine flour, baking powder and salt, stirring well with a whisk. Add flour mixture to sugar mixture alternately with yogurt, beginning and ending with flour. Drop by level tablespoons 2 inches apart onto baking sheets coated with cooking spray. Bake for 12 minutes or until lightly browned.

3. Combine powdered sugar and juice in a small bowl; stir with a whisk. Brush powdered sugar mixture evenly over hot cookies. Sprinkle evenly with 2 tsp rind. Remove cookies from pan; cool on wire racks.

Makes about 2 dozen
