I love sugar cookies and I love lemons, so this recipe was a no-brainer. While making them, I loved how my kitchen smelled, like fresh lemons. I had a serious problem keeping my fingers out of the cookie dough because it smelled so good. I think I ate about 4 cookies worth of dough, which normally I don't do, but I couldn't resist with these.

King Cake

King Cake is the preferred dessert in New Orleans during Mardi Gras. This round cinnamon roll cake is shaped into a ring, topped with an incredible lemon glaze and sprinkled with the colors of Mardi Gras, with purple representing justice, gold representing power, and green representing faith. A plastic baby is baked inside the King Cake, and the tradition is whoever receives the baby in their piece of cake must buy the next King Cake or throw the next party. No Mardi Gras party is complete without a delicious king cake!
