Gluten-Free Carnival Lemon Cookies

December 12th

Today I am getting together with friends to decorate cookies. We have all sorts of cookies that we will be decorating and some will solely be for eating during the process. These Carnival Lemon cookies add a bright, vibrant taste to any party. Whether looking for a last minute cookie for the work holiday party or a sweet treat these old world Italian cookies offer the perfect hint of sweet and savory.

Ingredients of the Carnival Lemon Cookie

  • 1-1/2 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1/4 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
