Glazed Lemon Cookies. Two ways. Half the batch iced, the other half plain for the crazy non-lemon lovers in the house. Kerstin made them, and I knew I had to give them a go. They really are perfect if you have any non-lemon lovers in your home, as the lemon is only in the icing. I think they would be perfect for an Easter dessert. (But if you ask me, as far as lemon cookies go, nothing beats a lemony snicket.)
I like when things sit in my knitting bag for two weeks. (Yes, start to finish, two weeks.)
As opposed to two years. (Well, going on two years. And I have no plans of finishing this in the near future.)

I'll be back next week with photos of Heron.
Until then. Enjoy your weekend!

  10. I love both projects - I am very tempted to try the Heron myself but it might have to wait until I finish off a few other things I have on my list! The lemon cookies sound great - I adore lemon - neither of my boys will touch it - a half/half batch for us too - Thanks for sharing the recipe! :D

  20. Oh! Now you're really stressing me. I still haven't baked any of the sugar cookies you posted last month that looked so incredibly delicious, and now you have some more wonderful-looking ones, ha, ha. Maybe I'll just have to bake both recipes at once.

    Thank you for linking that recipe. They look delicious! I'm confused why that other photo you linked to looks so different- they look like store bought cookies....or even cheese toast, with that odd shade of orange-yellow. Are you sure that they are the same cookies?

  50. Your weblog is fine. I just wish to comment on the design. Its too loud. Its doing way an excessive amount of and it takes away from what you received to say --which I feel is basically important. I dont know if you happen to didnt suppose that your phrases could maintain everyone attention, however you had been wrong. Anyway, in my language, there aren't a lot good source like this.
