These large 3 1/4 inch cookies have a wonderful lemon flavor and a chewy texture. I prefer them without the sugar glaze, but it makes a classic cookie base for holiday frosting. I can't remember where I found this gem, I have modified it some. Our family has looked for a good sugar cookie recipe for years and just loves this one. I find that chilling the cookie dough before baking really helps in maintaining a "classic" shape during baking, but be sure to press the cookie before placing in the oven or they will be "gooey" in the center. I like to use an ice cream scoop that I found at Bed, Bath, and Beyond for a consistent volume. It is just slightly larger than 1 tablespoon. Perfect for these cookies. Hope you enjoy them as much as we do.
