A creamy lemon-flavored liqueur filling is sandwiched between thin oval-shaped butter cookies for a sweet treat on any occasion. The recipe calls for a strongly flavored Swedish liqueur, but you can use amaretto if you like.
I make these every year for our annual cookie open house. We make about 15 to 20 different kinds of cookies and have a 4 hour open house with friends. We then prepare cookie trays to take to shut ins and freeze the rest to enjoy all year long. My husband helps with this four day project! He's retired ... and I'm partially retired. It has been a long standing tradition that we enjoy every year!
