    Normaone's Note:

    I love these with a cup of tea or with a scoop of sorbet. The yield depends on the size of cookie cutter you use. Chill time for the dough is not included.

      These really did not work out for me at all. The lemon flavor did not come through. The cookies spread nearly off the baking sheet. The dough is very sticky, so I'm guessing it needs more flour. But the cookies that came out were hard. I'm not really sure how to fix them up. I'm really sorry they couldn't come out better.
