Feature: Get Ready for Spring with This Easy Recipe for Lemon Drop Cookies

This easy recipe forLemon Drop Cookies combines tart and sweet, soft, not crunchy.

They're so different from the phrase, "That's the way the cookie crumbles."

The expression must have been coined specifically for other lemon cookie recipes - those yielding a crumbly collection of broken pieces.

Too often lemon cookies have a lackluster flavor and an over-crispy texture.

But this easy recipe for lemon drop cookies is soft and chewy, packed with just the right amount of bite, thanks to three kinds of lemon: fresh lemon, lemon flavoring, and lemon juice.

Lemon lover? You'll love these.

Prep time: 15 minutes
Set time: 9-10 minutes
Makes about 4 dozen cookies
