It’s almost spring! Which means days of below zero wind chills are going to be behind us soon. I wanted to make a lighter but delicious batch of cookies to celebrate instead of the heavy chocolate or peanut butter cookies that I usually make. Lemon anything is easily my favorite dessert type, so why not mix lemon and sugar to make a delicious cookie!

My name is Stephanie and I'm a 26 year old living in downtown Chicago. I live with my boyfriend and our cat, in Chicago's Little Italy neighborhood. When I'm not working during my day job as a civil engineer, you can usually find me running along the lakefront of Lake Michigan, practicing yoga at my favorite studio or trying new restaurants around the city. I am an avid runner and yogi, but even more so I love to cook and try new recipes. I try to live a fun and healthy lifestyle and to be as active as possible. All of my recipes include mostly healthy ingredients, but I love an occasional splurge.

  1. Stephanie, the recipe is missing the temperature of the baking oven.
    I’ve got the batter mixed, but there is no temperature listed.
    HELP!

  2. At what temperature should these cookies be baked? Also, what about preparation for the cookie sheet? Is any needed?
