Default Sick lemon cookies

We have been sick. I don't want to eat much but lemon/ginger. And tea. I am not a coffee person. Always tea. I really love these cookies with tea.
Cookies
2 cups all-purpose flour
1 teaspoons baking powder
teaspoon salt
cup (1 stick) unsalted butter, room temperature
11/4 cups granulated sugar
1 egg + 1 egg yolk
8 ounces plain cream cheese
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
zest of 1 lemon
5 tablespoons fresh lemon juice

Lemon Glaze

2 cups powdered sugar
4 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
1 teaspoons vanilla
2 teaspoons lemon zest

Cream wet ingredients. Adding egg plus yolk plus extract. Blend dry briefly. Bake cookies on parchment paper @350 for 16 minutes. Top with lemon glaze. Serve with tea.😊

We make a "sickie tea" wgen we're not well. 1 tsp peppermint and a little each of ginger, lemon peel, cloves, cinnamon, and honey to taste (and maybe a dash of cayenne! ). It doesn't cure anything, but we all feel a little better sipping it.

Oh, do you use the empty tea bags to mix it in? I just learned about these not long ago, and I have been fascinated ever since.

My husband does this awful concoction of grated raw onion with sugar. Let's it sit overnight and drinks a shot in morning. Nasty!

I hate him. He is never sick...

Sometimes, but they are expensive! A cheaper alternative is to take a cone shaped coffee filter, punch a couple holes in the top and slide a chopstick through. The stick rests on to of the mug and the ingredients go in the filter. If I can find the right link tomorrow, I'll post an example.

Funny...I'm definitely a coffee drinker, but one way that I know I'm sick is when I get up in the morning and want tea instead of coffee. It's the only time I drink tea. Thanks for the cookie recipe. I love all things lemon. Yum!

Try Greek lemon chicken soup. Better yet...have somebody else make it for you. If are low-carb, use spaghetti squash instead of pasta or rice.
