I am not usually a fan of lemon desserts.
There's no reason in particular, I just prefer the creamy sweetness of chocolate or cheesecake to the tart sweetness of lemon.
I participated in a cookie swap at my MOPS group last month.
My favorite cookie from the whole event was a very small cookie drizzled with a thin glaze.

She proceeded to explain exactly she made them. Simple indeed.

Another of my students plays football in the NFL. One owns a modeling agency and jets all over the world. One bought the house next door. Being a former teacher is crazy.
