Preheat the oven to 350 F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper and set aside.
In a large mixing bowl using an electric mixer, cream the butter until light and fluffy. Add the lemon juice and lemon zest and continue mixing until combined.
Add vanilla, then sweetener and almond flour and mix until the dough comes together.
Roll cookie dough into 9 balls, approximately 1.5 tablespoons of dough each or use a small cookie scoop. If the dough seems too wet, add up to 1 tablespoon of almond flour.
Bake in a preheated oven at 350 F degrees for approximately 8-10 minutes or until golden on the edges. Carefully transfer cookies to a wire rack to cool completely.
While the cookies are baking, whisk together the powdered sweetener, milk and lemon juice until smooth.
Add more milk or sweetener until desired consistency is reached. Drizzle over cooled cookies and enjoy immediately or place in the refrigerator until set.
While the cookies are baking, melt the coconut butter in the microwave in 20 second increments or over the stove and whisk until melted and smooth. Add maple syrup and lemon juice and whisk again, until combined.
