Gluten Free Glazed Lemon Cookies

Growing up with Italian relatives, every Christmas we would eat the most delicious Italian Lemon glazed cookies. I would literally look forward to them at every occasion! After going gluten free, I was no longer able to have them… at least until i was able to create this epic recipe! Not only are they flavourful and delicious, but they are also SO soft! Now that I am gluten free, I make my own version that are Organic and lower sugar!
