Lemon Cream Cheese Cookies Recipe

Try these delicious lemon cream cheese cookies with essential oil! These cookies are yummy - nice and soft on the inside with a light lemon flavor. All of the lemon flavor is from essential oil!

Good thing I love chocolate zucchini bread, lemon poppy seed zucchini... …
