    BakinBaby's Note:

    Our lemon tree is exploding with lemons! My recipe calls for fresh lemon rind and juice. If you use packaged lemon zest, you might want to add more than the 2 teaspoons. This cookie is light and crispy, not moist and chewey.

      Although I pretty much followed your recipe, I admit to being generous with my measures of the fresh lemon zest, since we do love the taste of lemon! You have a great cookie recipe here ~ Thoroughly enjoyable! Thanks for sharing it! [Made & reviewed in Everyday Is a Holiday tag]
