These cookies are glittered with lemon zest and bursting with lemon flavor. I made these and a batch of chocolate chip cookies on the same day and after trying both cookies, my 3 year old son, Liam, only wanted these Lemon Sugar Cookies. I can’t blame him (even though the chocoholic mama in me was like, WhAt?!). They’re amazing!

Buy some lemons and make these cookies!
