Directions

  1. Heat oven to 400°F.

These cookies turned out very nicely. However, if you want them as pink as in the picture, definitely use 2 drops of food coloring. I used one drop and they turned out barely pink. The taste of the cookie was a nice light lemon.

I made these for a cancer fundraiser and the pink color was great for that. Nice light cookie with a great lemon flavor, and so easy to make. They were a hit with the kids also.
