Lemon Doodles are the perfect balance between a chewy, light lemon cookie and soft lemon cake. Tangy and sweet, with a crunchy lemon sugar topping, these cookies are the ultimate treat!
As the cooler weather blows the heat of summer away, my cravings for cinnamon, nutmeg and cloves in absolutely everything simultaneously kicks in. Chances are, I’ll wash down any warmly-spiced food fodder with a giant chai latte. That’s how I roll in the Fall.
Oddly enough, once the snow flurries of winter breeze in, they seemingly bury any gratification I may have derived from cinnamon-infused treats in drifts of indifference. Weird.
Given my penchant for warm spices, I’m a little unnerved by the fact that I seem to be all cinnamon’d out. This winter, cinnamon just feels dark and oppressive. The mere thought of cinnamon feels like too heavy a burden to carry. Feelings that are further complicated by a rabid snickerdoodle craving that’s been haunting my every waking hour for days. Thanks for that, Rebecca.
I want them, but I don’t really want them.
A normal person would be lauding the sheer perfection that is the snickerdoodle, as a fresh batch was cooling on the counter. I, however, am unable to bring myself to break out any warm spices to satisfy a cookie craving.
Luckily, I’m also craving All Things Citrus at the moment, so bring me lots of citrus and keep it coming! Conveniently enough, citrus fruits are in season so this is one craving that I can readily satisfy.
Chewy lemon doodles are the perfect dose of sunshine on a cloudy day!
