I was at a cookie exchange last night and one of my friends made a peppermint cookie with lemon frosting. It was such an interesting combination, I just had to try it! Wow! It was awesome! First thing this morning I got to work trying to come up with a “clean” version of that cookie. Here it is, and it turned out really great! I hope you like them!
