Not the same as Ham N Goody's. They were to cake like. Ham N Goody's is a thin, dense cookie with a little saltiness to it. The baking soda and baking powder made them bitter and rise to much.
NOT Ham and Goody's! These are not very tasty ! Similar to cardboard!
Okay, but not even close to the same texture or flavor as Ham 'N Goody's lemon cookies. Too tart & cake-like for me & I even used less lemon juice than the recipe called for.
