I have always been fond of Citrusy flavors and while baking cookies for my grandkids I made these Lemon Cookies .  These cookies are my Day 2 post under the theme Cookies for your Sweet Tooth.

 

I have noticed that the kids always want something with chocolate , but I wanted a slight diversion and baked these . Surprisingly the kids loved them , more then the kids it is we grown ups that enjoyed them . The cookies have a wonderful aroma and the zesty lemon flavour is very very pleasant . If you want to turn them vegan just substitute the butter to almond butter . Enjoy these Lemon Cookies today , tomorrow I shall bring you one more Cookie recipe that the kids will love .

  1. I guess unless we learn to divert a bit with our baking, our kids will never appreciate new flavors. I have two who don’t like to move out and it gets very challenging, but I feel with age, they should be getting better… hehe… these lemon cookies would be lovely with some black tea… easy to make too.
