Here’s a truth about Amber-if it’s not chocolate, she doesn’t typically waste the calories to eat it. So even though she loves to bake anything and everything, she’s not very tempted by fruity desserts.
But when Danetta took a bite of one of these easy lemon cookies that we made for our lemon themed bridal shower and started raving about how good they turned out, Amber didn’t totally believe her. Until she took a bite. And then she gobbled the whole thing up! Danetta was right. These cookies are GOOD! So good and SO easy to make!
Guess what? Only 3 ingredients in these easy lemon cookies! Anyone can make these and wow their friends!
Plus they look so pretty don’t they? And really, these things will take you only a few minutes and a few ingredients to make! You can’t beat that, can you?

Did you melt the butter? Or soften it and cut it in with a pastry blender?

Just soften it and it should mix in just fine.
