I was trying to create a gluten-free lemon cookie recipe for a baking event this winter. I didn't have time to create one from scratch, so I looked at about 20 recipe and decided this one would convert well. I am so glad I tried it. While I had some conversions to do, it turned out delicious. They are light and fluffy, soft and delicious. They froze quite well, too.
