Citrus has long been a favorite at the holiday table. Used in both salads and desserts, the bright, bold taste of citrus seems to cut through the heavy flavor and feel of other holiday recipes. Perhaps the tartness from a lemon cookie tricks our minds into thinking we aren’t really eating a sweet dessert. These soft cookies have a creamy lemon filling made with fresh zest and juice. We also admire their beautifully crackled and crunchy tops. The filling can be made one day ahead. Cover and refrigerate the filling, and bring it to room temperature before piping onto the cookies.
