Make it Monday: Lemon Sugar Cookies

Welcome to my first "Make it Monday" post. I have some fun ideas for this weekly post and I'm super excited to share this one with you this morning!  

Ever go onto Pinterest and just randomly search for "summer cookies"? The amount of deliciousness that pops up is enough to instantly make my jeans tighter. Last weekend, I was in the mood to bake, but I wanted something "summery" that was delicious and somewhat of an easy recipe. 

Cutout sugar cookies are always fun, but it's so much work between making the dough, rolling out the dough, using the cookie cutters, etc... Oh yes and you have to spend time frosting the cookies all while having to resist "accidentally" getting extra frosting on your fingers that you just have to lick off because it would be a complete waste if you didn't. Good reasoning, huh!?!?

But, sugar cookies are just oh-so-yummy, so when I stumbled across this recipe for Lemon Sugar Cookies, I just had a feeling it would be a winner since they don't require frosting.  The cookies were fairly easy to make - the "zesting" of the lemons was fun because it made our house smell so fresh and "lemony". As much as I would love to take credit for creating the recipe, I simply cannot do that. So please head on over to Adding a Pinch to get the specifics! Trust me, you'll thank me later. My husband thinks it's perfectly acceptable to eat the cookies for breakfast, lunch, and dinner. 

 Aren't these just the most beautiful
 looking lemons ever?

Look at that lemon zest! So. Freaking. Good.

Every bite is perfectly full of lemon goodness!

  9. Yum! They sound really good. Frosting sugar cookies is way too much work, so these sound perfect without.
