I have been wanting to make these cookies for years, seriously for 5 years. The bakery I worked at the summer between my Sophmore and Junior year of college made these all the time. Why because they are simple, easy and delicious. You can make a lot at one time because they rise instead of spread out. The are yummy little cakey, lemony cookies and are perfect for the summer time.
I figured I should make some cookies to bring a little sunshine to a rainy day here in Scotland. Don't get me wrong, there has been sun, just not yesterday when I made these. Plus I can send them off with Charles to work, so that I don't sit around and eat all of them...although I did only make a half batch.
Well this past weekend we took a bus trip for the day around the Highlands. We say the "Three Sisters" and a castle, took a quick boat cruise of Loch Ness...no we didn't see Nessie, and strolled through a cute town. Then Sunday we took the train out Edinburgh, which totally lived up to what everyone said about it being a beautiful city. (Pictures from Scotland so far) Now we are back to the week, which I get to bake more hopefully yummy treats. Confession though, I have been baking and cooking and even doing a bit of work, but I have been sleeping a lot. You would think I hadn't slept in months...but then again I guess this is a vacation and I can do as a want with it. Oh wells, but you really should totally try these cookies! Enjoy!
Oh and I had my first fish and chips this week and it was delicious!
