One of the coolest things I have done since living in NYC was start a book club. It happened 2 years ago when I was mid-breakup and needing a change. I can honestly say that the people I have met in the process have been some of the best girlfriends I’ve ever had.
Anyway- we had a meeting a couple days ago and per usual I volunteered to bake something. It is rare that I can actually bring my bake goods somewhere where I know they will get eaten! That day, however, had a mind of it’s own. I found myself flustered and overwhelmed at 4 PM with no idea of what I was bringing.
Well, I am so thankful that I found this gem of a recipe. Not only did I have almost all the ingredients in my pantry to begin with, they were done, baked, photographed and ready to go in about an hour and a half.
I just wish that the photos I took did them justice. These cookies are amazing. Lemony and sweet, soft but also crisp. In short- perfection. They were a huge hit with my book club and I will probably be making them again very soon.
I only made one minor change to the recipe. After about 5 minutes of baking, I removed them from the oven and flattened the dough with the bottom of a glass. I then baked them for another 5 minutes. I wanted them to be more flat versus round and ball-like. Make these right away! I promise you will love them.
