We are big fans of lemon cookies in this house . . . okay, so I lied, it's really only me that likes baked lemon anything, but I didn't want you to think I was a glutton and eat all the lemon stuff myself, even if it is true. haha That's actually a lie as well, I normally send half of every lemon bake I make to our good friend Doreen. She doesn't mind in the least!
This week I made these gorgeously chewy lemon cookies . . . oh boy . . . oh boy . . . were they ever good!!
Did you know that by adding honey to a cookie you automatically up it's chewiness factor? It's true . . . and think of this taste combination . . .
Lemon . . . Honey . . . the two things just go together like peas and carrots. They are natural partners. The only thing that might make them better might be the addition of some candied ginger, but I digress . . .
These are buttery and chewy and filled with gorgeous lemon and honey flavours . . . not to mention a lip puckering lemon glaze icing drizzled over top. Oh boy . . . scrumdiddlyumptious!!
Equally at home and perfect with a nice hot cuppa for a mid morning or afternoon break or with a tall glass of cold milk. Oh, and they would be really fab with a bowl of berries and cream. Just sayin'
