This recipe makes a lot of terrific cookies! It's great for Christmas when all the kids and grandkids visit. They can help decorate the cookies-not to mention help eat them! Besides baking and decorating cookies and cakes, I enjoy taking long walks through our New York countryside.
Grated lemon peel in the batter and on the icing of these soft cake-like cookies gives them their fresh citrus flavor. The recipe makes about three dozen of the tender treats. —Betty Thompson, La Porte, Texas
My grandmother always made these cookies for us for Christmas, and now I have inherited that task. I make them throughout the year because I enjoy baking a lot. With rich cream cheese in the dough and the sugary almond topping, a batch doesn’t last long at our house!
These sandwich cookies taste rich and buttery and have a lovely lemon filling. The recipe has been in our family since the 1950s, when my mother got it from a French friend in her club. Mom always made them at Christmas, and now my sister and I do the same.
After we'd visited at her house, my sister sent a "care" package for the trip home. Tucked inside were these delightful cookies. Crushed lemon drop candies and grated lemon peel lend to the refreshing taste. —Pat Zimmerman, Midland, Texas
Rolled in colorful sprinkles, these melt-in-your-mouth cookies are pretty enough for a party. I make a lot of them for holiday cookie trays. (Complete your cookie tray with Chocolate Pretzel Rings.) —Delores Edgecomb, Atlanta, New York
