Today I thought we’d take a trip back down into the blog’s archives to revisit one of my all-time favorite cookie recipes.
I actually posted the recipe for these cookies back in my very first year of blogging, and they’ve been getting progressively buried in our cookie archives ever since. But I still make them every single year around the holidays, and can hardly believe their buttery, citrusy, sweet goodness each time I do. They are just the best!!!
Even better, they’re super nice and sturdy, which has made them my go-to recipe for cookie exchanges over the years. I must admit — I have received many a box over the years that has been full of cookie crumbles, especially when shipped through the mail system. But when packed correctly, I promise that these cookie will hold up well even when being shipped across the country, or carried in a toddler’s wobbly path down the street to a neighbor. 🙂 I’ve given them out for years, and they always receive rave reviews.
