When life hands you lemons make lemonade, or lemon sugar cookies.
I love hearing from my readers; it truly means so much when I get emails from you letting me know you have tried a recipe or other comments. A few days ago I received a sweet email from a reader named Mary telling me she liked my Lofthouse Sugar Cookie recipe and wanted my thoughts on how to make a lemon version of these. I just so happened to have a beautiful bowl of lemons sitting on my table eager to be used so I jumped right in the kitchen to whip up a batch of these cookies.
If you have tried my Lofthouse Sugar Cookie recipe you know they are just like the store bought ones; actually I think better. They are fresh and light and dangerously delicious. Oh and did I mention these freeze well too?
Let’s take those sugar cookies and incorporate fresh lemon juice and lemon zest into the batter and buttercream. The end result is the perfect lemon sugar cookie, soft and moist with hints of lemons.
The perfect cookie to make when life hands you lemons…
Thank you Mary for the inspiration to make this recipe.
