Friday Feast: Lemondrop Cookies

I had a request for lemon sugar cookies for an event. I tried to lemonize my favorite sugar cookie recipe, but it didn’t quite turn out as I’d hoped. After a little research and some trial and error, I have found a delectable lemon cookie – a perfect Summer treat. Cool, crisp and perfectly lemony! They’re slightly crispy on the outside and wonderfully tender on the inside.

And you won’t believe how easy they are to whip up.

In a bowl, mix all ingredients except for the powdered sugar.
Drop by rounded teaspoon into a plate of powdered sugar.
Roll into a ball and place the dough on a greased cookie sheet.
You may flatten them if you wish, or they will bake into cute little mounds.
Bake for 11-13 minutes.
Cool on rack and enjoy!
