  8. Bake both sheets in preheated oven, switching and rotating them halfway through baking, until bottom edges are golden and cookies are set, about 14 to 15 minutes.

  9. Cool on baking sheet several minutes then transfer to a wire rack to finish cooling.

  10. Set a baking sheet underneath cookies on rack, then spoon and spread glaze over cooled cookies and let glaze set at room temperature. Store cookies in an airtight container.

  11. For the glaze, in a mixing bowl blend together cream cheese and lemon juice. Mix in powdered sugar stirring until smooth.
