Frosted Lemon Cookies

Frosted Lemon Cookies

These Frosted Lemon Cookies are so soft and have just a hint of lemon in them. The first time I made these cookies, I gave some to my mother-in-law to try out. She loved them so much that she asked me for the recipe. Now when she makes them she gives us some of the cookies. I’m definitely okay receiving yummy cookies!
