Lemonhead Cookies

I’ve talked a lot about Over The Top Cookies, so I thought I’d talk some more… only this time it’ll be about a recipe I’ve duplicated. I’ve been searching for the perfect recipe for quite some time… and yes the lemon cookies I made last time were really good, but they weren’t at all the same. This time though, I stumbled upon the one. There were a few changes I made, they’ll be reflected in the recipe below. So try them out, you’re going to love them!
