      These cookies are perfect with iced tea and hot weather! The combination of lemony sweet cookie and tart glaze is wonderful. I got a bit "zesty", so mine were a bit more tangy. We loved these, and thank you for sharing.

      I made these today but changed some stuff... Let me first say tho that the kids really liked them.

      Okay, so I doubled the recipe and used 12 packets of Splenda and 3 T of honey instead of the granulated sugar. It was really thick so I used 3 eggs instead of 2 (in the double batter recipe). It was still thick enough that i literally used my hands and kneaded the batter Seeing that they didn't spread at all, the next tray I pressed them down a bit and basicly molded a cookie shape. They were perfect. Not too sweet, not too lemony, just really good. And again, the kids thought they were great with no sugar! :) I'll post a pic if I can.
      thanks JDG for the recipe!
