Gluten-free Triple Lemon Drop Cookies

Gluten-free Triple Lemon Drop Cookies

Recipe by Gluten Free Baking By Rachelle (Rachelle Himmelman)

I love lemon anything not just a little bit a whole lot, I mean lemon anything has got to be my weakness where some people say chocolate is there weakness mine is by far lemon. I mean cakes, pies, cookies, candies. lemon, lemon, lemon, did I mention how much I love lemon?? :) I designed a gluten-free cookie that could satisfy my lemon addiction for the moment. A Gluten-free Triple Lemon Drop Cookie that has more than one lemon source. I used the zest, juice and extract just to make sure it was lemony enough. For anyone who enjoys lemons you will surely love these cookies, I think these cookies are better the longer they sit as all that lemony goodness comes together I mean what could be better than lemony goodness, right??
