    Greeny4444's Note:

    The addition of cornstarch to these cookies really makes them melt in your mouth! The fact that they are egg-free makes them good for those allergic to eggs, and since the cookies are little, it is easy to eat a bunch - unfortunately... :) These are a nice addition to a summer BBQ, a baby shower, or any get-together. These can be made with any citrus fruit, but we like lemon the best!

      They really do melt-in-your-mouth! Definitely my go-to for parties now because I can fit 30 little cookies on a cookie sheet .... they do not spread out!!!! Too easy to eat six!
