Lemon Sugar Cookies for Grandma

My grandma has a sweet tooth and loves all things lemon.
Oh my gosh she makes the best lemon tea bread on the planet!
Every year I try a new lemon recipe and include it with her package that I mail a week or so before Christmas. This year's recipe of choice is a lemon sugar cookie that turned out to be a real treat. This is definitely going in my book of recipes to repeat. It was easy and the cookies are SO yummy!

Since I have to mail these cookies I wanted to test them for texture and freeze-ability. The good news is they froze really well, and even after several days the cookies are still nice and soft. I'll pull the cookies out of the freezer just before I box them up, and by the time they arrive on Grandma's doorstep a few days later, she'll be able to enjoy some with her afternoon tea.



I actually followed the recipe without changing anything up this time, so I'll just share a link to the original and save myself the typing. :o) You can find this recipe by clicking here.
 
Grandma is going to love these!

Hi Deb! They look delicious and I have no doubts that they'll put a huge smile on her face! Oh, and I saw your Thank You card in my mailbox and a HUGE smile spread across my face. Know why? I have the exact same Thank You cards. I think they're so adorable. I wasn't at all surprised that you have the same ones!!! XOXOXO

I tried a new lemon cookie recipe several years ago at Christmas time. They were such a big hit, I make them every year now.
