Still searching for "the" lemon cookie for big bday celebration, thanks for all the suggestions, tried a couple but found this one and I made it but didn't quite understand what to do
"Beat the butter in a medium bowl with an electric mixer on medium-high heat until smooth."
I took this to mean to use a double boiler, but maybe they mean use a pan? I have made a lot of cookies in my day and this is a first, made lots of frosting this way but cookies?
That said it is a great cookie!! I am now testing it plain, with the frosting, and with frosting with sanding sugar. So far cookie with frosting is no.1.
fyi "Iced Citrus Crackle Cookie " from Food Network

I don't think the word "heat" should have been in there!

It's a typo they meant to type beat not heat.

It said "on medium high heat." That can't be a typo.

Since there is mention of using a mixer, I say they meant to type "speed", not "heat".

It's a typo. Further down the instructions it says, ("The creaming is important to get a great texture so don't skimp here.")

You can't get "creaming" when beating it over heat.

Medium - high - refers to SPEED of the mixer.

Duh, why that didn't occur to me, I'll never know. Of course it means medium high speed.

Feels like it's just a bone to pick with FN.
