So I can see everyone making this cookie recipe and it doesn't even matter what level you are at in baking.So I feel the recipe itself gets two thumbs up from me./spanbr /span style="font-size: large;"br //spanspan style="font-size: large;"Now for the ingredients that work so well together to create layers of flavor and texture.The Dairyland butter and sour cream are what create that rich flavor;however more importantly give us that soft and tender texture we need in these lemon softies.Then we have the lemon zest,which creates that lemon flavor we love so much along with the nutmeg that give just enough spice to balance out the lemon.Then we have the rich and sweet golden raisin that also create a slight chewiness to these cookie.They can no way be thrown out of this cookie recipe, they are too important in flavor.Then lastly we have the almonds which bring more crunchy texture then flavor.So overall, these cookies are mildly sweet and its the flavored ingredients themselves that give so much flavor./spanbr /span style="font-size: large;"br //spanspan style="font-size: large;"These cookies were excellent,easy to make and the Dairyland products were great in this recipe.The butter and sour cream were rich and creamy,which created a rich and flavorful cookie.I give two thumbs up again, overall.Just wait though once your done making these lemon softies you can pair a delicious drink with it.Just combine Dairyland 1% Chocolate Milk plus coffee liqueur to create a rich and sweet drink.Its a delicious combination with these lemon softies.Definitely a great drink for this holiday season!/spanbr /span style="font-size: large;"br //spanspan style="font-size: large;"So I hope everyone enjoyed my review and be sure to try out this cookie and drink recipe.Be sure to stay tune for more Dairyland reviews coming up!/spanbr /br /br /div class="separator" style="clear: both;
