These lemon cookies are dedicated to my friend Tess, who astutely pointed out to me that most of my latest pins on Pinterest were of lemon baked goods. “Are you throwing a lemon-themed party?!” she asked, and I, not realizing my pinning trend, had no idea what she was talking about. But she was right. Lemon cupcakes, lemon cookies, lemon cakes, lemon parfaits, lemon puddings… it was getting out of hand. My favorite color IS yellow and one of my favorite flavors IS lemon, so I decided to go ahead and make lemon cookies in her (and spring’s!) honor.
I love soft, melty, buttery cookies. And these lemon cookies do not disappoint. They’re versatile, really, because you can cook them on the shorter side and end up with melt-in-your-mouth treats, or just a little longer and you still get that crispy, flakey texture. They come together very quickly, don’t require complicated ingredients, and they stay fresh for days! I think. I wouldn’t know, actually, because they were gone within a day at my house. They probably will be gone at yours, too. Unless you have willpower stronger than steel.
I even ate one for breakfast.
I lied. I ate two for breakfast.
