Lemonade Cookies

READY IN: 28mins
Recipe by Kim D.

These cookies are soft and delicious! I found this recipe in a cookbook titled "Treasured Recipes - The Ladies of Sacred Heart" (Houston, Texas). The original recipe said it makes 6 dozen, but I think it only makes 2-3 dozen.

Made as written, with the addition of 1/2 tsp. lemon zest. The texture is lovely -- got 52 cookies, baked for 9-10 minutes, on the second rack from the top. Was hoping for more pronounced lemon taste, but that may develop in a day or two. Makes a nice change from the usual Christmas plates. Thanks for posting, Kim.
