Lemon Nut Refrigerator Cookies

READY IN: 19mins

This is a really old recipe that I found in my late MIL's recipe box, which I "inherited." They are surprisingly simple, and very tender and just a lovely cookie to serve anytime.

Yum! These cookies are just what I was looking for. Something a little different. They were DELICIOUS! Perfect with a cup of tea, nice to bring as a little gift. I was looking for a recipe for something similar to Pepperidge Farms' lemon nut cookies, which I was craving and can't find. These are a little less "shortbread"-y and mine came out a little chewy. The pecans make them a little buttery-tasting and I added more lemon rind than called for. My 3 year old and I LOVED them. My husband and 5 year old didn't. If you like lemon, you will love these! I will be making these a lot more often! Thanks, Fluffster!
