Okay, today we are talking cookies again. Ready? I know I certainly am.

These cookies were a total experiment on so many levels.

First of, I just can’t get Meyer Lemons out of my head. Something about this time of year has me craving citrus, especially these wonderful lemons. So yeah, we are using whole lemons in this recipe, rind and all. And you’ll be transforming them into one amazing little snack. Turning lemons into candy might one of the best things I’ve done in a while. I am already obsessed with them, but being able to eat these plain? I’m in big trouble. They are sweet, tart, sour and perfectly lemony all at the same time. It’s incredible.
