Lemon Sugar Cookies

Lemon Sugar Cookies Recipe - Cashmere & Cocktails

Prepare yourself for some sunshine in cookie form with these Lemon Sugar Cookies (and I don’t know about you, but I need all of the extra rays I can get at this point). Honestly, I’m having a hard time believing that September is just around the corner. While I love all things fall, I feel like this summer completely escaped me and I’m left feeling more than a little down about it. So before I accept the inevitable and immerse myself in Pumpkinland, I’m going to pump out a few more summery recipes. Cool? Besides, not only do these lemon sugar cookies feel like a bite of sunshine, they’re also soft, chewy and come with just the right amount of zingy lemon flavor, so they’re a win in any season.
