Lemon Drop Wafers

The addition of crushed lemon-drops adds a light crunch that makes this cookie distinct from most lemon cookies. The result is like a crackle cookie withe chewy bits of tart lemon chips. My family has a long standing tradition of baking cookies for a growing list of family and friends. Baking begins the day after Thanksgiving (while most folks are shopping) and continues right up to Christmas Eve. This recipe comes from a cookbook given to me by my my dear friend Rita L. If properly stored , the cookies keep for two weeks making it well suited for cookie trays. Preparation time uncludes 30 minutes to freeze dough. Please note that because of the candy in the dough, these are very hot and sticky on first removing from the oven. Please take caution.
