Another fantastic recipe from my ZWT6 co-Unruly! You're my new cookie queen :) I made them gluten free with gluten free flour mix and used 3 cups of the flour mix. Boy did the dough already taste good! So lemony - and the smell while baking - to die for. I made them a bit too big I guess, got 54 cookies which were perfectly done after 15 minutes. Thanks for posting another keeper! Made for ZWT& for the Unrulies Under The Influence.
