Lemon Coolers Cookies

Lemon cooler cookies are sooooooo delicious. I remember when I first ate one I had never had a cookie dusted with powder sugar, and packed with lemon zest. They were called Sunshine Lemon Coolers. Best cookies ever. The cookie to me taste like a lemon short cake cookie, not too sweet, and just the right amount of lemon tart flavor. The girl scouts came out the a lemon cooler reduced fat, they were pretty good too.

Lemon coolers are not just for the girl scouts anymore. Unfortunately, they are no longer sold by the girl scouts. Have no fear if you are a lemon lover then this is the recipe for you.

The recipe is simple and easy to whip up a batch of these delicious cookies.

If you are a lemon lover you may want to try these recipes too Lemon pound cake or Blueberry lemon pound cake, they are just as delicious.
