      I, as well, didn't do the icing. They are still wonderful...I added 3 drops of lemon oil along with the zest to punch it up a bit. Will make these again.

      A bit bland, I thought.

      This was a hit with the girls! With the icing being thin I thought it worked well. I didn't want to roll them out so I made "logs" chilled it in the freezer (I was in a hurry) and sliced them. I will post a pic as soon as I can. Will be making this again.
