Lemon Drop Cookies

Okay you guys!  These cookies are perfect!  Soft and chewy!  Tart yet sweet!  You won't be able to eat just one or two OR THREE!  Three words:  You Are Welcome!!!!!

The line up:
Cream together:
1 stick butter
Zest of 1 lime and 1 lemon
2/3 cup granulated sugar
1/4 cup agave nectar or honey(or just use another 1/4 cup sugar
Add and mix in:
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 tablespoon lime juice
1 tablespoon lemon juice 
Add and mix in:
1 3/4 cups flour
A pinch a salt
Form dough into 1 inch balls and place on a cookie sheet.  Into a 325 degree oven for 10-11 minutes.
Once out of the oven and onto cooling racks make the glaze:
Juice of 1 lemon
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
Roughly 1 1/2-2 cups powdered sugar(or as much as you need to get a nice drizzly consistency!  I added the powdered sugar a little at a time and mixed with a whisk to avoid lumps.)
Drizzle tart glaze over cookies and enjoy!
