Glazed Lemon Poppy Seed Cookies

These are the best lemon cookies I've ever had. I have tried MANY different lemon cookie recipes but none compare to this one. They are soft and have a lot of good lemon flavor. SO good. If you like  lemons, please try these!

                             
1/2 c butter
2/3 c sugar
1 TBS lemon zest
6 TBS lemon juice
1 egg
1-1/2 c plain flour
1/2 tsp. baking powder
1/4 tsp. salt
2 TBS poppy seeds

Preheat oven to 350.
In a bowl cream the sugar and butter. Add the zest, juice and the egg. Add the flour, baking powder and salt and mix well. Stir in the poppy seeds.
 Drop by teaspoonfuls onto a greased baking sheet and bake  for 10-11 minutes. Take out as soon as you see any brown on the edges.
Glaze:
1  c confectionery sugar
2-3 TBS lemon juice
Mix together to the consistency you like and drizzle over warm cookies.
