I have a real treat for lemon lovers out there.
These wonderful lemon cookies will touch your heart.
Containing lemon juice and lemon zest, they are packed with rich and fresh lemon flavor.
It’s the real deal, guys.
And the texture?
Tender and crumbly, dangerously addictive with their melt-in-your-mouth quality and powdered sugar coating.
I wish I could deliver their scent to you right now. Soooo amazing!
