Lemon Crinkle Cookies

I have a collection of different flavour combinations of these crinkle cookies. Yes, they have a lot of icing sugar in them, but hey there are so many foods I cannot eat that I love a little indulgence every now and again. Having said that, I am excited to finally share with you one of my favourite citrus versions of these cookies. I do love my citrus! You have probably worked that out by now.

Of course, you can use lemon peel (zest) in these cookies instead of the lemon essential oil, however, I love how zesty the oil is and the enhanced flavour it gives to these cookies.

Now remember, I use dōTERRA essential oils. The lemon essential oil can be ingested, so don’t think oh lemon essential oil and race to the shops to buy one, as it may actually be harmful to ingest.

I hope you enjoy the sweet fresh tang of these cookies, as much as my friends, family and I do.
