    Ceezie's Note:

    If Santa's elves grew citrus trees, these sparkling lemony bites would surely be among the branches. Sugared dough balls should be chilled before baking for 30 minutes or frozen 5 to 10 minutes to preserve their round shape. Keep chilled after baking. A few suggestions - These are great with lemon extract added to the dough - in addition to the vanilla. They are also good with oranges and orange juice. I have heard it suggested but have not tried - lemon curd instead of buttercream and peppermint sprinkles with chocolate filling. Recipe Source: Gourment Mag

      These were pretty good. They taste like lemon butter cookies. My daughter had alot of fun decorating them with the sugars. We made ours alot bigger than you were supposed to and ended up with 12 cookies almost the size of golf balls! I thought I was kinda making them small but...I guess not small enough. I made them the size of shooter marbles. They don't spread much which means you can put them close on the tray when you bake them. Thanks Ceezie! Made for PRMR
