This is a soft, lemony cookie I found in a Pillsbury cookbook.

This is one of my all time favorite cookie recipes. I once 'lost' it and was so sad. I looked online and at that time could not find it. One thing different that I do is add lemon juice. This does make the cookie spread out more and gives it a more lemony taste. I also used mashed potato buds because that was what I had at the time. None of these small changes hurt the taste of the cookies. A very unique cookie.
