Lemon Glaze
3/4 cup powdered sugar
1 tablespoon plus 1 1/2 teaspoons lemon juice
Stir ingredients until smooth.

BETTY'S TIP: Here's an easy rule of thumb-one fresh lemon will give you 2 to 3 tablespoons of juice. To get the most juice out of a lemon, it should be at room temperature. Some people like to zap whole lemons in the microwave on High for about 20 seconds or so to warm them.
