Lemon Sugar Cookies with Raspberry Cream Filling

I am not usually one to blow my own horn, well at least I think I'm not, but sometimes something turns out so well it's hard not to get excited and braggy.

These cookies are so delicious--surely some of the best cookies I've made so far. The cookie part is from Martha Stewart; it's her Old-Fashioned Sugar Cookie recipe. The cookies are full of fresh lemon flavor and are not overly sweet. The filling is actually the frosting I used on the last TWD cupcakes. It's 1 stick of cream cheese, 1/2 stick butter, powdered sugar, and about 6 ounces of fresh raspberries. I used just enough powdered sugar to thicken the frosting, so it wasn't super sweet. I had some frosting left after I made the cupcakes, and I decided to use the rest to fill the cookies.

The lemon cookies and the fresh raspberry cream filling work so well together--the cookies taste just like summer. I will definitely be making these again as they are the perfect cookie to eat poolside!

Here's a link to the sugar cookie recipe:
