recipe here

It was my sister's friend's birthday recently, and since she is like another big sis to me, I asked her what she wanted me to bake her for her birthday. She said something lemony, so I went through the recipes I had saved and tried to find something that sounded good AND I had all the ingredients for. This one met both.

I LOVE lemony treats but I had never made one before, so it took me a minute to figure out that grated lemon zest was the skin and that no, I shouldn't grate the whole thing. Ooops. But I was able to salvage that mistake easily (and fortunately we have plenty of lemons from our lemon tree) and do it properly the next time. This was a fairly straightforward recipe. I was a bit skeptical about how dry it would be considering it didn't use milk, melted butter (just creamed butter), or eggs, but the lemon juice seemed to do the trick. This made me 14 cookies, but I tend to like my homemade cookies a bit smaller than most other people do.

Notes about this cookie: IT REALLY IS CHEWY (hey, it's in the name!), but there's this especially lemony bit in the center that's not quite cooked all the way through, which makes it sound awful but it's so good. It's almost like a lemon bar in that way, which is what the recipe said. I ate 2 as soon as they were out of the oven, so I suppose where everybody else is concerned, it made a dozen :P In other words, I thought it was delicious.

I hope my sister's friend enjoys them!
