Recipe by TasteTester

I saw this recipe and made it the next day -- it was a real treat for us because we all love the taste of lemons and it has a nice creamy frosting. They were so good they only lasted one day in our house!

These were delicious, the frosting especially! Quick and yet a special treat.
