Lemon Cookies

The lemons on my meyer lemon tree are blooming. I am so excited! I love seeing the lemons on my tree come to life. This can only mean one thing; lots and lots of lemon zest and lemon juice, neatly packaged and stored in the freezer. The perfect ingredient for almost any dish - savory or sweet!

Today is the day that I start making doughs for all my holiday baking. Each year I try to add to my repertoire and this year is not exception. I found this recipe for Christine's Lemon Wreath Cookies in the December issue of Martha Stewart. I always like to include a lemon cookie in my holiday packages and this one seemed perfect. I liked the shape, a lot, and I liked that it was a simple butter type dough.

I made the dough and rolled each cookie out and placed on parchment sheets. I then froze them. Once they are set, I will put in a sealed container and bake off on the official baking day (this year it will be, Sunday, December 13th). I will probably have about 8-9 different kinds of cookies and bars to bake that day. Generally, some of my friends pop by, help bake and sample all the goodies.

I haven't completely finalized the gift baking menu. These are better than delicious and have definitely made the cut.
