While some recipes are a pain, unworkable and simply, a waste of time & $$ .. some are not.

This is one of them.

Definitely works, straightforward and so darn delicious.

Lemon Moments :

As the name has already suggested, it’s lemony.

Buttery rich with a refreshing lemony taste in every bite you devour, thanks to the finely grated lemon zest.

Oh, it kinda melt in the mouth too but not in the Melting Moments‘ way *wink*. Crunchy and crumbly + a little melt in the mouth.

Yummiyummiyummilicious is the word, dahlingsss…

Not too long after, i decided to bake it again.

This time, the maid took over the reign while i settled the boys. Not a minute of help from me at all…

Boy, was she stressed up or what. No, not because of me definitely.. i’m not that essential yet. Heh. But it was the new cookie maker -which she asked me to buy-  that stressed her up! She was having such a hard time getting the dough out nicely.

Poor her. By the time she was done, she didn’t even wanna look at the cookies anymore, let alone.. test them.

Meanie pot me just sat down on the floor and looked on, laughing, teasing and happily snapping her pictures away :P

Though unsightly, they were still good to eat.

Silently, i prayed that the gfs didn’t mind!

It was meant to be a surprise when i dropped it (+ other stuffs too) of at their respective humble abodes..

But the table got turned around instead.

You know why?

Because.

I came back with these!
