During Winter months my mom gives us Meyer lemons from her tree. They are THE best flavored lemons. Sweet and tart combined. They are just the right flavor for my Raspberry Filled Lemon Cookies. I love them so much that I thought you might like the recipe, too.
(My Raspberry Filled Lemon Cookies are pictured above with my own recipe for Butter Lemon Snow Drops-that was featured on Pillsbury.com)
