Thank you, thank you, thank you to LittlePeopleWealth for the Lemonade Award! This is super exciting. I love all the comments, all the followers, and all comraderie that blogging inspires. To take a line from Sally Fields, "You love me, you really do love me."

The 6 terrific blogs I'd like to pass this award onto are:

1. Nidena - I love her refreshing attitude!
2. Living on the coast - This girl inspires me to save better and shop smarter.
3. Grocery Hound Poker Chick - She always makes me feel like I'm in the action.
4. Hounding with frugalsuz - my deals wouldn't be possible without her help!
5. Life is hard - Just keep swimming - Her tenacity and determination motivate me.
6. The Martha Initiative: I adore people that have initiative.

With that said, there is nothing in life sweeter than turning lemons into lemonade, so without further ado - I give you a lemony twist on what was my grandmother's chocolate chip cookie recipe. Hope you enjoy!

Lemon Almond Cookies
1/2 C. each brown and granulated sugar
1 stick margarine, softened
1 egg
1 tsp. lemon extract
1/2 tsp. baking powder, dissolved in 1 T hot water
2 C. flour
1 C. sliced almonds

Preheat oven to 375.
In large bowl, cream together sugars and margarine. Mix in egg and extract. Stir in dissolved baking powder, stir in flour, and mix in almonds.
Drop by rounded spoonful onto ungreased cookie sheet.
Bake for 8-10 minutes for soft cookie, 12 minutes for crunchy cookie.
Yield = 24-30 cookies
