Isn't it funny how your tastes change over time? When I was little, it was all about chocolate and peanut butter. I was baffled because my Gram and aunts all preferred lemon bars over chocolate chip cookies. There's probably something scientific about it though, because as I get older I just love lemon as well!
Warm out of the oven, and you'll fall in love with these wonderful cookies too! They absolutely MELT in your mouth! The edges are slightly crisp, the centers are chewy and tender. And with the trifecta of lemon flavor - fresh lemon juice, lemon zest and a nice splash of lemon extract, you'll definitely know these are lemon cookies!
If you love Chocolate Crinkle cookies, you should give these a try! The texture is very much the same, and the cracked top dusted with powdered sugar gives it a light sweetness that is just perfect.
And it's amazing how the littlest amount of powdered sugar will give away Lemon Crinkle Cookie thieves! You may need to hide these....
