If I don’t have a shopping list, I’m aimless in the grocery store and I end up buying things I don’t really need.  This is why I found myself with a couple of purposeless lemons.

I thought I’d try to make this recipe for lemon spritz cookies since the recipe looked easy.  But there’s no call for baking powder, baking soda, or eggs.  A strange recipe but one that I thought I’d try anyway.

When I was mixing everything together, I realized that the mix was too crumbly and was never going to work.  So I added 1 egg.  When I noticed it was starting to come together but still needed more, I added one more egg.

Also, my lemons must have been very juicy too because I squeezed the juice from 1 lemon which meant there was about 3-4 TBSP of juice. 

The cookies were tart and lemon-y.  I liked them!
