Moist Lemon Tea Cakes

Ingredients
1-1/2 cups butter, softened
1 package (8 ounces) cream cheese, softened
2-1/4 cups sugar
6 eggs
3 tablespoons lemon juice
2 teaspoons lemon extract
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1-1/2 teaspoons grated lemon peel
3 cups all-purpose flour

GLAZE:
5-1/4 cups confectioners' sugar
1/2 cup plus 3 tablespoons 2% milk
3-1/2 teaspoons lemon extract

Directions

In a large bowl, cream the butter, cream cheese and sugar until light and fluffy. Add eggs, one at a time, beating well after each addition. Beat in the lemon juice, extracts and lemon peel. Add flour; beat just until moistened.

Fill greased miniature muffin cups two-thirds full.

Bake at 325° for 10-15 minutes or until a toothpick inserted near the center comes out clean. Cool for 5 minutes before removing from pans to wire racks to cool completely.

In a small bowl, combine glaze ingredients. Dip tops of cakes into glaze; place on waxed paper to dry.
