This was my first year participating in The Great Food Blogger Cookie Swap. I’m not even sure how I stumbled upon it but I’m so glad that I did. Each blogger who participates donates $4 to a chosen cause. This year it was for Cookies For Kids Cancer which sealed the deal for me to participate. Yummy cookies, money benefitting a very worthy cause.. count me in! I had a great time receiving the packages and trying the delicious cookies that were sent to me. If you go to instagram or twitter and search with the hashtag #fbcookieswap you can see the pictures of the cookies I received as well as others. If you’re a food blogger and didn’t participate this year.. don’t miss it next year! You can receive email notifications by Signing up HERE!
It took a few to decide what cookie to make but then my husband suggested we make his moms Sugar Cookies. I was happy to give them a try because every recipe I’ve tried of hers so far, has been delicious. We made a trial run and they were very good but a little plain for what I was looking for. So, back to the drawing board. What if we used the sugar cookie recipe and amped it up a bit with lemon and a lemon icing? Bingo! So, this Iced Lemon Sugar Cookies recipe was born. If you’re looking for a cookie that’s not too sweet, stays soft for days and has a little bit of a punch then you’re going to want to try these!
