This is another recipe from FB. July 9th is Sugar Cookie Day. Tried these and they are divine. Crispy on the outside, puffed and tender on the inside, with a complex yet comforting light citrus and vanilla flavor. Here's a link to the blog where this recipe originated from pattietierney.blogspot.com/...s.html. She has a lovely backround story that goes with this wonderful recipe. Be sure to check it out.
