    TaterBug! :)'s Note:

    This is a terrific and addictive recipe for the best lemon cookies that you will ever put in your mouth. I can't take credit as this recipe comes from Citizen Cake in San Francisco. Enjoy!! These are well worth the work. This recipe can make 30+ cookies. It reall depends on how you cut the cookies and how much filling you add.
