Not bad. Lemon flavor is quite mild. If I make them again, I'd double the lemon.

My mom and I make Christmas cookies for several days every year, and we're known for our efforts. We added this recipe this year, and they were a HUGE hit. They have a fantastic flavor and are light and yummy! Here's a tip, though - spritz the cookies when they're still chilled, or chill the dough, to get better results. Otherwise, the spritzed cookies won't stick to your cookie sheet and they come out more like globs.

These are excellent! Just the right amount of lemon and cream cheese flavor. They are perfect little spritz cookies and worked great in my SuperShooter. I only needed 10 minutes bake time...any longer and they started to brown on the edges. Thanks for posting!

These are delicious! We made them this afternoon and shared them with neighbors. The lemon adds a nice element to the flavor. Also, to those who thought the lemon flavor was too mild, I'm wondering if you used lemon juice instead of lemon flavor? I thought these pressed easily and I had an old school twist cookie press that was my grandma's. We liked these so much better than the spritz recipes that use shortening! The cream cheese element is nice, too!

These were ok. I don't taste any lemon flavor at all. The texture is a little weird also. Almost tastes like it isn't cooked enough.

I agree the flavor was quite mild and I added a bit of lemon juice. I also had to add the egg white to increase the moisture enough to make these fall out properly when baked. The dough was a bit too dry to "Spritz" properly. I made them work though. Yum!
