Sweet 'n' Lemony Melting Moments!

 

Mother's other "famous" Christmas cookie contribution was the "Melting Moment."

I know these are seriously out of fashion... but I don't care...

The texture is sooooooooo different from most cookies... because of the cornstarch.  But it's the very, very lemony glaze that's the game changer.

Try them... and let me know!

    Made these twice today. First time by the recipe and they are wonderful! Second time I added macadamia nuts and also used a chocolate glaze on some and the lemon on the rest. Good, but not as good as the original. Thanks so much for sharing. I really appreciate a good lemon dessert!
