Notes

Per author: Lemon Sugar Cookies are the perfect spring or summer sugar cookie. They’ve got so much lemon flavor with the lemon extract AND fresh lemon zest. I loved that you could see the flecks of lemon zest in the cookies too. The edge of the cookies is a bit crispy but the inside is perfectly chewy, and the chewiness lasted a few days too!

A dash of local for every season
