Lemony Sandwich Cookies : sunny and lemony !

Irresistible creamy Lemony Sandwich Cookies could be made using any cookie cutter you like the most. Since Easter is getting closer, I thought how nice it would be to make them egg shaped for a change …

I usually make the star or flower shaped for Christmas but it seems this one is appropriate for the season. To have the information as complete as possible, let me say these are two inches long.

Of course, if you like the taste and I am quite sure you are going to, keep the recipe for any time of the year.

Once finished, children pick these ones, egg shaped, first from the table….
