This recipe is really an old fashioned kind of cookie. It’s really easy to prepare and you can even freeze the dough for a month or two before baking. The cookies also freeze well after baking. I usually sub Splenda sugar and brown sugar for the regular and they come out a little on the dry side but still very good. I used the zest of a whole lemon and the juice from a big lemon -- nice and lemony. You can add in chopped nuts, coconut, poppy seeds, etc., when mixing the dough. Perfect for summer or for a Christmas cookie tray.
