On the menu July 14 — July 20

Living la dolce vita? These citrus-y, glazed cookies will make you feel like you’re living the sweet life in the Italian Riviera. We start with the classic sugar cookie and add notes of bright lemon. Then, we bring on the taste of Italy by infusing fresh basil with butter and combining it with sugar and even more lemons to make an herby lemon-basil glaze. Best served on a warm summer day with a tall glass of iced tea.
