These have the most delicious light, delicate taste and texture. I made the dough into 3 rolls and have 2 in the freezer ready for when I want a quick batch of fresh baked cookies.
Did this for a desert and coffee night. Made them a week ahead and put them in the freezer. Tasted as though they just came out of the freezer. Will do these again. Thanks
The cookies themselves were kind of dry... The dough was crumbly and hard to work with, but I put it in the freezer for a while and that helped. I iced them with a lemon icing (2 cups powdered sugar, a few T. lemon juice to taste) and they were pretty good. I don't think the cookies would have been nearly as good without the glaze.
We found the dough too crumbly so we added more butter. We also added more lemon zest for a more intense lemon flavor. The result was lovely.
I wanted an easy cookie recipe to try out in my brand spanking new convection oven, and...WOW. This is one of the easiest cookies I've ever made. Since everything goes in the food processor, it went together very fast. The only change I made was to add the zest of two lemons for a little more flavor. THUMBS UP for a wonderful summertime cookie recipe, already a classic favorite!
Lovely lemony cookies. On top of that, convenient. Following Dale!'s lead, I now have some in the freezer for future snacking, too. Oh, one thing: I tried to remove the first ones from the sheet too soon and they crumbled, but they were fine after cooling about 5 minutes. Thank you very much for this recipe.
These cookies are so delicious. I made them for a bazaar and they sold like hot cakes. It is a fact that when they have been frozen, and thawed, they taste fresh baked.
