Lemon butter cookies are soft, crunchy cookies with a refreshing lemony taste.
My 12-year-old son did an initial trial run on making this, which unfortunately didn't turn out well. This was his second attempt to make these cookies.
On his first try, he put the juice of 2 lemons, the taste was good but a bit too sour and feels like eating cookies with Sinigang flavor. We threw out all the first batch and made another one, this time he put a lot less lemon juice -- and it great, the cookies didn't make it to the second day...
Come and try making our cookies.
