What a great cookie! A great recipe to help use up leftover homemade lemon curd! The cookie dough is not too sweet so it does not distract from the lemon curd filling. I added a TBSP of curd to the dough while mixing for a fresh lemon scent & flavor in the cookie itself.. a perfect cookie.

This is an awful recipe. Not sure why the 1T of powdered sugar is listed twice.It's also really hard to stir 1 2/3 C flour into a tiny mixture of powdered sugar and butter. It flaked up and didn't turn into dough at all. I refrigerated it (covered of course), and it was pure crumbs. I had to add some egg beaters to it to make it piece together instead of falling apart when I tried to make a ball.
