The first thing you are going to want to make is the lemon curd. This is the same thing you’d put into your lemon pie so this adds to the cookies.
I made a more shortbread style cookie and followed this recipe. The only change I made was adding some lemon juice to the dough. It ups the lemon flavor a little bit.
These cookies are like a lemon pie in one or two bites basically. The Mister told me they were like lemon bars to him in a cookie form. As a not big lemon flavor fan he loved them as well.
