Fluffy lemon cookies? Puffy lemon cookies? Lemon cloud cookies?

So many different names I considered for these citrusy little cookies, but the important thing is that you know how delightfully puffy they are. And the outside is just lightly golden and crisp, so doused in glaze they taste reminiscent of a lemon cake donut hole.

Reasons to Love These Lemon Cookies

  • full of citrusy springtime vibes
  • super tender and fluffy
  • made with cassava flour so they’re vegan and grain-free
  • bake in less than 10 minutes
  • extra sweet and yummy glazed
  • but also delicious warm without!

There isn’t a ton of lemon juice on the ingredient list, but trust me the lemon flavor comes through bright and strong. You could easily try them with lime or oranges too. Happy puffy cookie baking!
