    Easy and delicious. I made a lemon buttercream filling and made sandwiches out of them, which were great! They were scrumptious by themselves, too.

    Delicious, easy, and just the right amount for two people! Appreciate the kind person who posted what the resident lemon-lover puts right at the top of his favorite cookies!
