I love two things. Sugar cookies and lemons. So why not combine them? The sweetness of the sugar cookie with the fresh tangy flavor of a lemon. It’s a perfect duo. The icing sets up nicely so these can be stacked. It’s easy to spread and looks so pretty. Just like the ones from the bakery. The hint of lemon isn’t over powering at all, but if you are worried you can start with 1 tsp. and go from there.
