Use a small cookie scoop to make balls out of the dough. Make balls out of the dough and then coat them in the lemon lavender sugar.

Once the baking sheet is ready, put the dough balls on it and slightly flatten each one. (Make eight cookies at a time.)

Spread icing over the cookies after they have cooled down. Let the icing set on the cookies, and then eat them!
