We've all heard the saying "when life hands you lemons, make lemonade", well this post is a spin on the old saying. Nathan's dad LOVES lemons, and I mean loves them, like he eats them as if they were an orange, so when he showed up with a giant bag of lemons, I wasn't entirely surprised. However, when he told me I was to bake something out of them I was slightly perplexed. I had never used fresh lemons for anything other than for sweet tea, but I was definitely up for the challenge :).
So I pulled out my favorite random ingredient recipe app and started sifting through the recipes, and of course the typical recipes came up; lemon meringue pie, and lemon biscotti among others, but just not what I was looking for. Then a quick swipe to the next page, and low and behold I found a recipe fitting of the season, lemon sugar cookies with a nice lemon icing! So with out further ado, lets get to the cookies!
