Did you ever eat Lemon Coolers? These cookies may have been my favorite store bought cookie ever. I love lemon, and these cookies were covered in powdered sugar. What more could you ask for? Whenever you would put a cookie to your mouth, one breath could send a puff of sugary smoke into the air. Super messy, but delicious.
It’s getting hotter here (like only Texas summers can), and I started thinking about lemonade, which got me thinking about the aforementioned cookies. I decided to see if I could make them myself. I searched the internet high and low for the right recipe and settled on this one from Sophistimom. The recipe is called Chewy Lemon Snowdrop Cookies. The cookies definitely have the look of my old-time favorite, but I didn’t think they had enough lemon to satisfy me. I adapted the recipe by doubling the lemon juice that the original recipe called for, plus adding few extra tablespoons of flour to offset the additional liquid. I have to say the cookies were really tasty. The dough is really yummy, too (not that I licked the bowl clean or anything like that).
My über picky eater son eagerly devoured a few, too. Hope you take the time to cool off this summer with some chewy lemon snowdrop cookies!
