So I was craving lemon flavoured things, okay, lemon loaf cake but I had to make cookies. I picked a few lemons and started on this Cool Lemon Cookies recipe. Oh, check out my new dish that was on clearance at World Market! I’m having guests over and I didn’t actually have enough full sized dinner plates for everyone. We don’t do china and I’ve moved over to all white plates. Yeah, dorky but It’s just the two of us and I paired way down so I had to pick up a few more basics. And maybe a few polkadotted mini casserole dishes. I’m not having people over for a few weeks but there was a sale. I’m a sucker for a sale.
You go to the recipe yet? Yeah. If you haven’t here’s a spoiler alert: no fresh lemons. Oops. Anyway, I have lemon extract so the day was not lost. I considered adding the fresh lemons in the recipe but honestly it was light and pleasant as-is. The yogurt and the shortening give them a nice softness and texture. I didn’t have any powdered lemon drink mix things in my cupboard so I just did plain powdered sugar.
