|light & crisp filled with lemon goodness|
Last week I was delivering a meal to a new Mom and I needed something sweet that was quick and easy to do. I went to the pantry for inspiration and found a lemon cake mix from Duncan Hines. On the side of the box there was a recipe for lemon cookies with a lemon drizzle and they only took 20 minutes to bake. We were in business!
These cookies had an lovely lemon flavor with a crisp texture on the outside, chewy on the inside. I baked them, drizzled them with a very light powdered sugar/lemon glaze, topping them with a sprinkle of rainbow colored sugar. They were scrumptious. My friends husband thought I had bought them from a bakery! High praise indeed.
Celebrate the Feast!
