      I didn't find the dough difficult to work with (and I've been told I'm pretty hopeless with a rolling pin). I really liked the cookies and got lazy and used lemon curd from a jar so they were pretty easy to make.

      I made these and they came out excellent. Maybe little turtle should check measurements. I've done it before. The curd was very lemony. The cookie tender.
