Feature: Easy Lemon Wedding Cookies - Just 7 Ingredients

Image: The Cookie Elf

Lemon Wedding Cookies are a light, tangy variation of traditional Mexican Wedding Cake Cookies.

The more traditional and much-loved Mexican variety makes regular appearances on holiday cookie trays – maybe even yours – with names like “Snowballs” or “Russian Tea Cakes.” But this lemony, lighter version is a refreshing departure during the spring and summer.

You can bake them for weddings (of course) and bridal or baby showers. Or perhaps just make them whenever you get the urge, so you don’t have to wait until once a year to indulge. Spoiler: they’re perfect with iced tea or lemonade!

Prep time: about 20-25 minutes
Bake time: 9-11 minutes
Makes about 4 dozen cookies
