Sometimes I’m into chocolate but sometimes I’m not. And it’s the same with me and cinnamon sweets… maybe I’m a yes but maybe I don’t want any part of it. But sweet lemon treats? Offer me some Lemonheads or your yellow Starburst or some gluten free lemon cookies and I’m always down. ALWAYS DOWN I tell you.

There’s something about the sweet with a little bit of tartness that makes me so very, very happy. And for the longest time I hadn’t had lemon cookies but guess what happened? I’m pretty sure you’ve got it all figured out but here we go… I’ve got an amazing gluten free lemon cookie recipe that you MUST TRY.

I’m pleased as all get-out to be sharing with you an amazing lemon cookie recipe that just so happens to also be gluten free. And we’re not talking the kind of gluten free where you’re measuring out xanthan gum and a million other things… we’re talking a tidy little ingredients list with nothing weird or unpronounceable at all. It’s almost like when you COULD bake with gluten :)

Are you ready to get your scrum-didly-umptious lemony goodness on? Because I was born ready!

Let’s make some Gluten Free Lemon Cookies, y’all.
