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!

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

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

  • I followed the recipe exactly and when I cooked the cookies (I tried this recipe twice), they flattened out and turned brown on the edges.
