  2. These sound delish! What kind of cooking oil do you use? Could I use coconut oil?

  3. But my favorite is the sweet little wren on the jars of flowers. I LOVE this! I have gone back to look at it several times now. The cookies look good! And what a treasure to have your grandma's recipe.

  4. These remind me so much of my grandmother's cookies. That buttery taste must be wonderful, truly melt in your mouth. I wonder why we ever get off on complicated complex cookies when these kind of grandmother cookies are the absolute best.

  8. I can't tell the amount of butter in these would make them moist and delish. Butter makes everything better :).

  10. I'm always up to try a new sugar cookie recipe. Thanks- I am copying this over to my files. One of my granddaughters is already investigating school for pastry chefs. She has been baking since she was 8 or 9 (almost 15 now). I like the idea of the lemon instead of vanilla.
    Have a great weekend- xo Diana

  16. My mum used to have recipe cards like that. I take it that powdered sugar is the same as icing/confectioner's sugar?
