Last week I was baking up a ton of desserts – 3 kinds of cookies (peanut butter, lemon crinkle, snickerdoodle), oreo balls, mint brownie bites, and homemade snickers. Of all those my favorites were, of course, the easiest ones to make – the oreo balls and the lemon cookies. Figures.
Don’t you love how I couldn’t be bothered to take the cookies off the rack for the pictures? I knew I wanted to share the recipe but I was busy!
A couple notes:
I doubled the lemon zest (zested a whole lemon) AND doubled the lemon juice. I’m so glad I did. As written, the lemon flavor would be so subtle it would be weak. I may even increase it more next time.
When rolling the balls of dough in the powdered sugar, press the sugar in the dough just a bit so you get more on the cookie. It seems to absorb quickly.
Make these – they are so easy!
