Easy Lemon Cookies (Paleo, Gluten Free, Vegan)

When it’s warm out, I love lemons!  Lemons in my iced tea, fresh squeezed lemonade, and… these Lemon cookies made with Fresh Lemons!  I absolutely love how these easy-to-make lemon cookies are made with real ingredients, aren’t too sweet, and have the perfect amount of lemon flavor in them.  If you love lemons, this is the perfect treat for you!
