Lemon Crinkle Cookies

I love lemon. Especially in the spring time. Easter, lemons and springtime just go together in my book and today’s Lemon Crinkle Cookies fit right in too!

A friend recently sent me a link to a recipe for Lemon Crinkle Cookies. It had won one first place in a cookie contest at LDS Living magazine.

Since I had a whole bag of lemons sitting on my kitchen counter, just waiting to be used, I decided to give the cookies a try – right then. I mean don’t you put everything on hold in life when a new lemon recipe is calling your name? Well, I do!

The cookies have a nice light lemon flavor to them, not too tart or overpowering. They also have a nice soft texture and the powdered sugar coating gives them a melt in your mouth quality. They would be quite lovely with a cup of tea.

Happy Springtime (even though it still looks and feels like winter her in Portland!)
