These cookies are so soft and the citrus flavor is so unique. I hope you love these tender cookies as much as my family does! A perfect summer afternoon treat with your lemonade!

Very nice cookie! Neither honey or lemon overpowered the other flavor. I didn't have plain yogurt so I substituted with vanilla yogurt which may have toned down both flavors. I didn't get anywhere close to 3 dozen out of this recipe though. I only got 28 cookies with a small cookie scoop. Frosting was very sweet and ehanced the lemon flavor of the cookie. Will bake again!
