Light and Luscious 4 Ingredient Lemon Snowflake Cookie recipe is so easy to make and literally melt in your mouth. They are the perfect delicious no-fuss cookie recipe.
I found an old newspaper clipping with this recipe in the recipe box that my Mother-In-law gave me and wondered why in the heck I’d never heard of Lemon Snowflake Cookies?
They sounded too good to be true. With just 4 ingredients? I didn’t have anything to lose trying them.
I put these together one morning when John wasn’t home. When he saw them he had a couple and asked where the recipe had come from.
I imagine lots of foodie husbands ask about the origin of recipes right? I told him his mom’s recipe box and he said he’d never had them before either.
These cookies literally melt in your mouth.
They are soft and luscious and just heaped with flavor. They’re perfect for cookie exchanges because if you don’t make them humongous as I did, you can get about 3 dozen….or so the recipe said!
Even though these cookies are called Lemon Snowflake cookies, they would be amazing any time of year. Maybe Sunshine cookies?
