I'm not going to tell you that these are life changing, but if you love tender chewy sugar cookies, and if you LOVE tart lemon drop candies, you are going to LOVE these wonderful cookies. And I double-dog dare you to only eat one!
We've got a trifecta of lemon going on here - fresh lemon zest, fresh lemon juice, and Rodelle Lemon Extract. You could stop here if you wanted to, because you now have the world's best lemon sugar cookie. But what really takes these tender cookies over the edge is a quick roll in Lemon Sugar - a delicious combination of granulated sugar and True Lemon. If you've never tried True Lemon before, it is a granuluated lemon product that tastes JUST LIKE FRESH LEMONS! No sugar, no artificial sweeteners, no colors, preservatives, sodium or gluten - just pure lemon flavor. As an alternative, you can add a tablespoon of fresh lemon zest to the sugar before the final roll.
I was going to call these "Lemon Drop Cookies", but that name really doesn't give justice to just how wonderful these are. The fresh lemon flavor just BURSTS in your mouth!
These are pretty wonderful warm from the oven, but they also freeze really well. They are always a favorite on my cookie trays! Hope you love these as much as we do!
