This recipe comes from a sweet lady at church. She opens her home to ladies from church and teaches us her amazing cinnamon roll recipe. She also shares other recipes with us in a nice little book. This is one of those recipes. I thought this lemon recipe would be a nice addition to all the other cookies I have made. I look at this recipe as a palate cleanser like sherbet. These are a nice slightly tart cookie.
The powdered sugar balances the tartness in these cookies.
Now roll the cookies out into small balls. I froze mine. To bake preheat oven to 350. Bake for 13 minutes. Cool for about 5 minutes before the next step.
I think you will like the lemon flavor of this cookie.
