These are whole wheat?! Amanda! That is amazing! Not only are they gorgeous but they are healthy too. I also like my desserts VERY sweet, but I think I could get used to these.


Fabulous!! These would be great for my Bible study girls.

Joy Ellis

awww...you put my name on one!! Were you thinking about me and how much I love lemon?? LOL They look good!


These are darling! :] They look like chic versions of doughnut holes! :P hehe


Great recipe with the whole wheat and less sugar. Could you make the glaze without the corn syrup?


Hmm might have to give these a try. Thanks for sharing. They are cute :)


A healthy Bon Bon Cookie...Who Knew!? They look amazing Amanda.

Julie @ Willow Bird Baking

So, so cute, like always!! I love 'em!


Oh Yummy!!! Whole wheat flour and lemon...you've won my heart!
Can't wait to try these!
*Hope your cute little guy is feeling better and healing quickly, too! Sometimes I feel like I'm living in fearful apprehension of when (not if) one of our boys is going to need stitched up! Hope your mommy heart is regaining strength too! :)


how much powdered sugar did you use for the glaze? =]


I'm with you...bring on the sugar!!! Those are very cute though. And I'm trying to figure out if these would actually be less calories in the long run...just to add more to the "sugar is good!" campaign. If these leave you longing for more, would you eat more than you would the sugary versions? This wouldn't work for me cause I'd eat them all either way.

The real reason for this comment is to beg you to open an etsy shop so I can obtain your sugary, adorable cookies and what-nots!!! You haven't yet?!


Oh wow, these look so delicious & pretty too.

Lauren @ Crave. Indulge. Satisfy.

Adorable cookies...love all the different piping techniques you used for the icing!

Amy K

Oh, pretty, pretty! They look yummy!


Gorgeous!! Can't wait to try!

Amanda Rettke

Oh, and its 3 cups by the way. :)

They are BEAUTIFUL! Can I have a box of these for breakfast...right NOW?!?


Very cute! And yay for being a little bit healthier. :) can't wait to see what you come up with next.


Oh I also agree with the comment above about opening an etsy shop! You so should!!


Oh wow these look fantastic!

Quick question...would these freeze well? Is it better to freeze the cookie or the dough you think?



These look positively adorable!


I just made your sugar cookies and icing last night as a trial for cookies for my daughters birthday party....they are THE BEST EVER!

They are so cute, and if you use 1/2 the sugar doesn't that mean you can eat twice as many...I think so :)


if i'm gonna eat a cookie, it had better taste good. i'm okay with whole wheat in there as long as it doesn't TASTE like whole wheat. :)


I just bookmarked these - i am always looking for healthy dessert recipes!


They look really pretty and delicious. Yum! Thanks for sharing!

Kristin Morris

These are so tiny and cute!! You did a great job on these. They look great. Now, dipped in chocolate, would have put them over the top! LOL ;)


Oh my gosh...those look so good, and so addicting! How easy it is to just pop them in your mouth!!!


I have a STRONG aversion to lemon. Is there another "healthy" recipe that you would suggest?


If life is a quilt, then love should be a thread.


They look awesome!!! I love all things lemon. so I can see myself devouring an whole batch of these.


Wow. These look so simple yet so fancy. Looking at your other posts, I can see how talented you are at writing with icing. Must have taken a lot of practice!


Amanda! These are wonderful! I'm sorry I didn't see them sooner! I've fallen off my baking wagon for the summer because it's so dang hot. And because I would rather go to the lake and get sunburned :]

Erika Beth, the Messy Chef

I made these last night and realized that the instructions don't mention when to add in the milk for the cookie dough. I added it in before the flour. Seemed to work out ok.
