These simple sugar cookies are made lemony by infusing the sugar with lemon peel. Lemon juice adds a bit more lemon flavor. The dough comes together quickly. Using a small cookie scoop keeps the cookies fairly uniform, although I had a couple that did not spread as much as the other cookies.

I chose to bake my cookies for about fourteen minutes which resulted in crispy cookies. They were very gently browned on the bottom.

The cookies have a mild lemon flavor. I prefer them to lemon cookies that call for lemon extract. I ended up with about seventy cookies; I mailed the bulk of them to my son. Share the cookies, share the love!
