Lemon Cookie Ball Recipe

This Lemon Cookie Ball Recipe is inspired by seasonal lemon-flavored Oreos.  They are made like traditional Oreo Cookie balls but taste lighter and brighter, like lemon cheesecake. These balls require only 3 ingredients, but optional the decorations will add a pop of color to your holiday table!
