I just posted another lemon cookie recipe too. Here is Lemon Cookie #2. I had been searching JAP for a simple lemon cookie not made with a cake mix and had given up after five pages. I went and dug through recipes I'd clipped out or written down for the last recipe I posted. This one is from MyBakingAddiction.com.
