A good but not great cookie. I was hoping for more lemon flavour, and this just didn't do it. I did use all butter rather then the shortening, but it was still tough.

You just can't beat a cookie with lemon in it. I didn't have Lemon extract, so I used the juice of a real lemon. these are so yummy! (I had em for breakfast) :) Thanks Lori!
