I originally started this blog as a place to store tried and true recipes for my family. It didn't take long to discover how supportive and fun the blog community was and I became hooked! I rarely create my own recipes, but I still hope you'll enjoy the recipes that I find and tweak a bit.
My husband has been getting after me lately because every time I come across a dessert that I really want to make, it contains lemon..."what's with all the lemon!" I just can't help myself, it's just a bright tangy flavor that never seems to get old.
The very name of these cookies was appealing to me, and they are about at close to a refreshing glass of lemonade as you are going to get. They also really hold up to the name SOFT lemonade cookies. I don't know that I've ever eaten a cookie that was so soft, tender and delightfully chewy. Perfect for a spring picnic!
