LEMON COOKIES


These sweet and buttery  cookies are always a favorite for not only you can tailor the shape but also dress them simply with granulated sugar or decorate them with your favorite frosting. They  can be kept  for several days in an airtight container. Adding corn flour ensures it has soft texture. Use softened butter and not easily spreadable ones for easy mixing.

These cookies are divine! They were delightful, crisp and crunchy on the outside but soft in the middle, full lemon flavor. Also great for parties and  as a gift too.
