Lemon Poppy Cookies
Although these look like cookies, and although I’m calling them cookies…they don’t exactly taste like cookies. These delightful little lemon-y pillows of softness are more like muffin tops than anything else. Should I give them a name? Muffkie Tops? No…that sounds like a cutesy name for my squishy midsection.
I don’t know what it is about lemons and poppy seeds that go so well together, but they’re a dynamic duo and I will love them forever. When I baked this morning, my intentions were to make muffins, but it would appear that I have four cupcake tins and not a single large muffin tin. Muffins should be gigantic (like the ones you find at Costco) and I don’t know how I didn’t realize I’ve never owned a massive muffin tin. That is beside the point - my inability to make Costco-esque muffins led to me finding a recipe for these muffin-top-like cookies and I’m super happy with how they turned out! They’re delicious, super soft like a pillow, and very easy to make.
