Low Fat Lemon Cake Cookies

Apart from my Kodiak Cakes Chocolate Chip Cookies (which may or may not be considered a classic by now….by mostly just me, but whatevs), these low fat Lemon Cake Cookies are maybe my best creation to date.

The texture, the taste, everything bursts lemon cake perfection. (Yes, I realize it’s almost the end of September and I have no business posting a lemon cookie recipe right now but YOU NEED DIS. Trust me.)
