      These are wonderful. I made them exactly as the recipe stated except I must have cut them a tiny bit thicker and got 24 cookies (which fit my cookie sheet perfectly). The texture of the cookie was superb and the amount of lemon just right.

      Colorful, tender, lemony with just the right balance of tart and sweet -- these are party cookies. Consider making a double batch, though. Made for Favorites Game, Feb. 2009.

      Great taste and lovely delicate texture. Very impressed with these cookies. I found them too sweet with the hundreds and thousands around the edge and left them off after the first batch. Another variation I found good was to sprinkle the cookies with caster suger before baking them rather than icing them. These are very popular with my kids
