Yes, I am still using all the lemons I bought last week. This time I came up with a beautiful and zesty grain free lemon drop cookie that I think you will love!

These delicious cookies will be devoured so you might want to make 2 batches at a time. I did not experiment with doubling the recipe, I just made 2 separate batches, but I think it will work with doubling the recipe.

Get the recipe for the lemon frosting here.

The frosting uses essential oil of lemon with an option for using lemon zest.
