Lemony Glazed Shortbread Cupcakes

25 mins (prep 25)
10 ingredients
24 mini cupcakes
These rich and crumbly little cupcakes sing with the flavor of zesty lemon. When cookies such as shortbread are largely dependent on butter, make sure the butter is fresh. To check, scrape a bit of butter from the top of a stick with a knife. If the scraped area is a lighter shade of yellow than the nonscraped area, your butter has seen better days and is best used for cooking.
