two

Glazed Lemon Cookies. Two ways. Half the batch iced, the other half plain for the crazy non-lemon lovers in the house. Kerstin made them, and I knew I had to give them a go. They really are perfect if you have any non-lemon lovers in your home, as the lemon is only in the icing. I think they would be perfect for an Easter dessert. (But if you ask me, as far as lemon cookies go, nothing beats a lemony snicket.)
I like when things sit in my knitting bag for two weeks. (Yes, start to finish, two weeks.)
As opposed to two years. (Well, going on two years. And I have no plans of finishing this in the near future.)
I'll be back next week with photos of Heron.
Until then. Enjoy your weekend!

I love both projects - I am very tempted to try the Heron myself but it might have to wait until I finish off a few other things I have on my list! The lemon cookies sound great - I adore lemon - neither of my boys will touch it - a half/half batch for us too - Thanks for sharing the recipe! :D

Yum - lemon's my favorite; can't wait to try them out when I get back from the LAST (yay!) ski trip of the season. Can't wait to see Heron, too!

AllyB said...

My Grama used to make those lemon glazed cookies and they were my favorite! Thanks for the happy memory. Your knits are lovely. Great color on the sweater.

Jan said...

Cookies look great - try Barefoot Contessa's lemon pound cake for some lemon goodness. Looking forward to seeing the sweater!

Linda said...

The cookies look delicious, and I'm impressed with your speed in knitting.

Kat said...

I agree on the fast knits front. Two weeks is super quick! I much prefer fast knits for quicker crafting satisfaction. The cookies look awesome. I am definately a lemon lover so will be trying these out soon.

Linda said...

Peggy said...

Those cookies are a fave at our house too. Especially the icing. I've been known to lick the bowl clean!

Caroline said...

Oh! Now you're really stressing me. I still haven't baked any of the sugar cookies you posted last month that looked so incredibly delicious, and now you have some more wonderful-looking ones, ha, ha. Maybe I'll just have to bake both recipes at once.

rosemary said...

can't wait to see Heron.
thanks for the cookie links....the both look good

iknitipurl said...

Your fingers must have been burning up with your needles clicking so fast. Two weeks?!?! Impressive. I've never seen the sweater before but now I'm gonna have to queue it up. Can't wait to see your finished pictures.

Sandy said...

ColorSlut said...

I can't believe how fast you are! Those cookies look amazing.

Larissa said...

Cannot wait to see the Heron on you! It already looks amazing just sitting there in your bag - and in just two weeks!

Anonymous said...

Thank you for linking that recipe. They look delicious! I'm confused why that other photo you linked to looks so different- they look like store bought cookies....or even cheese toast, with that odd shade of orange-yellow. Are you sure that they are the same cookies?

Thanks for the yummy cookie recipe link. With a wonderfully producing lemon tree in our yard, I am always on the lookout for creative new uses for lemon juice and zest. Hubby's gonna love these!

Your weblog is fine. I just wish to comment on the design. Its too loud. Its doing way an excessive amount of and it takes away from what you received to say --which I feel is basically important. I dont know if you happen to didnt suppose that your phrases could maintain everyone attention, however you had been wrong. Anyway, in my language, there aren't a lot good source like this.
