LOVE these! What a great summer cookie! I had a very large lemon and a half of another. I used it all and I believe I used a little over the 1 TBS of lemon juice. Such a nice light flavor!

LOVE these cookies! I added 1/4 tsp lemon extract to add a bit more zip...they are delicious and a must try for lemon lovers!

These were easy, light, tasty little cookies! I must have made mine a little small as I got a full 4 dozen and had to cook them only 10-11 minutes. Thanks for posting!
