Soft and chewy lemon sugar cookies are the perfect dessert for spring. Freshly grated lemon zest and lemon juice produce an incredible lemon flavor. I have had this recipe bookmarked ever since I laid eyes on them over on Two Peas and Their Pod. They looked so light and refreshing that I knew they would be a hit in my citrus loving family. Rolling the dough in sugar before you bake them produces a wonderful sugar crust.
