Writer Notes

It’s citrus season and my household’s a host of minute bushes are stuffed with hundreds ripe fruit. I’m also irritating myself to make a number of of my favourite cookies vegan & celiac generous and why no longer start up with my favourite —shortbread. These cookies are minute, crispy & light, yet they pack a mountainous punch of recent lemony flavor from loads of meyer lemon zest and smothered in a tart glaze jeweled with poppyseeds. —jonajim
