After making the delicious s’mores bars I was really craving something light and summery. I decided to browse Pinterest, my go to place for new things. I wanted something that had lemon in it so when I came across these Lemon Butter Cookies I knew they’d hit the spot. I was a little disappointed that they didn’t come out looking like the picture on the recipe I found but boy were they delightful. They definitely hit the spot and I knew they were too good not to share with you.
