Grandma Bardole's Super Sugar Cookies

So.  These about these sugar cookies.  They're our go-to sugar cookie recipe, when you're so overloaded with chocolate and uber-rich desserts and stuff that's still left over from Christmas, still left to age in the fridge (please tell me I'm not the only one that does this).  It's almost like ushering in a premature spring- these cookies are light and lemony but still slightly buttery.  And the edges get all lovely and crispy while the middle's soft and yummy..... *sigh*  Let's just say they're really, really, really yummy.

You'll have to excuse the lack of pictures.  I was rather busy stuffing my face with them.  Sometimes it's the little things in life.    

Oh, and just in case you ask, I have no idea who Grandma Bardole is, for the record.  *shrugs*  But hey, she sure does know how to make sugar cookies.
