Lemon Sugar Shortbread Cookies

I’ve been on a lemon kick lately.

…so be warned if you plan to tune in over the next few days. Especially if you have an aversion to the little, yellow, sour buddies. I happen to adore them, so be nice.

I think my lemon kick is due to the change in seasons.

Like a sudden urgency to hold on to a piece of summer.

I love the combination of lemon and sugar. During my elementary school days, we had an annual spring fair and one of my BEST memories is going to the stand that sold half a lemon with a candied straw stuck in the middle.

Simple memories from different seasons of life.
