Sometimes in life, when your husband gives you lemons, you make Lemon Glazed Cookies! These are addictive. You’ve been warned.

Grey claims lemons are his favorite, but every time he eats one he tells me it’s  too sassy. We have a Costco size jar or lemon juice in the fridge and he always wants to drink it.

I usually oblige and give him a little taste and he, of course spits it out. He insists I make the worst lemonade ever, and walks away. Obviously, because of this I had to make Lemon glazed cookies and the boys loved them.
