Lemon Chocolate Chip Meltaway Cookies
These are practically the definition of a summer cookie. Small round lemon cookies dotted with chocolate chips and a double coat of powdered sugar. Yum. I guess they could be called a lot of things, snowball cookies, tea cakes, but I decided to call them meltaways. They do truly melt in your mouth. They’d go perfectly with a cup of tea :-)
