Directions

40 minutes
  • 1Preheat oven to 375° and line 2 large baking sheets with parchment paper. In a large bowl, whisk together flour, salt, baking powder, and baking soda.
  • 2In another large bowl using a hand mixer (or in the bowl of a stand mixer), beat butter, sugar, and lemon zest together until light and fluffy. Add eggs, one at a time, beating after each addition. Add vanilla and almond extract.
  • 3Add dry ingredients to butter mixture and beat until just combined. Add sour cream and milk and beat until just combined.
  • 4Using a large cookie scoop (about ¼ cup) scoop dough onto prepared baking sheets, about 3” apart.
  • 5Bake until edges are golden and tops are just set, 12 to 15 minutes. Place cookies on a wire cooling rack to let cool completely.
  • 6Meanwhile, make frosting: In a large bowl, combine powdered sugar, corn syrup, 5 tablespoons hot water, and vanilla. Add more hot water, 1 teaspoon at a time until a spreadable consistency is reached. A thicker icing is better than a thin icing for this cookie.
  • 7Place about half of the icing into another bowl. Add cocoa powder and 1 tablespoon hot water and mix until combined. Add more hot water 1 teaspoon at a time until a spreadable consistency is reached.
  • 8Flip cookie over to the flat side and using an offset spatula, spread vanilla icing on one side of each cookie. Let set until hardened, about 15 minutes.
  • 9Spread chocolate icing on the other half of each cookie and let set until hardened, about 15 minutes, before serving.
