Lemon Shortbread Cookies


When life hands you lemons, make lemonade, add it to grilled salmon, stuff some in roasted chicken, sprinkle the juice on some oysters, add the zest to cookies, steep slices in your tea, make lemon-ricotta pancakes, use them to clean just about anything... 

There are few ingredients that draw my attention more than lemon. It is definitely one of my top five favorite flavors. I think part of it comes with the fact that it's so versatile. Able to mix seamlessly into any type of dish, lemon is definitely one of my kitchen essentials. (That and a microplane.) Plus, how happy is the color yellow?!
