Meyer Lemon Sugar Cookies

I had a slightly traumatic experience Friday morning. I went to scan something and my computer told me I needed to restart to install updates. I usually just click “restart later” but for some reason, I clicked “restart now,” and was then met with this screen.

Frozen just like that. Any attempts to revive the computer were futile. Mike thinks he can save it, but it’s a $300 netbook that I’ve had for two and a half years, use constantly, and carted all over Asia. It was probably time for an upgrade anyway.

After that, the rest of Friday was pretty good. I was planning on taking a rest day, but ended up running a mile and a half with my PE kids (and doing tons of burpees. So fun.) Friday night was, as always, pizza night.

This week it was super simple: just marinara, mozzarella, a little cheddar, and some canned pineapple. One of my favorite combinations!

Oh, and I made some cookies. Mike really liked these; I wasn’t quite as sold. I always get really excited when I see Meyer lemons, so I buy a bunch, bake something with them, and then remember that I like regular lemons much better. Meyer lemons just remind me of gin for some reason, and that’s not really something I like to be reminded of.

But if you do like them, and you are looking for a nice simple cookie to make with them, here you go!

    Truth: I don’t know that I’ve had a Meyer lemon. I’m rather fond of regular lemons, but I do like gin, so maybe I’ll like Meyer lemons too… Now I’m gonna be on a mission to find them and make these cookies! Oh, and I looooove pineapple on pizza too!

    I hate computer issues. I always seem to have them at the worst time. Although, I’m with Mike – I’m thinking yours probably has an easy fix.

    I’ve been wanting to make these for weeks, finally got meyer lemons at Whole Foods today and man are they tasty! I added another lemon’s worth of juice for the last few batches as I wanted a litttttle more lemon flavor– but these get two thumbs up!
