    I made this at Christmas last year and they were a big hit, especially with me and my mom. The frosting is a must.

      These cookies are delicious! I didn't have any parchment paper, so I baked them on greased cookie sheets, and they still turned out moist and puffy! They were great even without the frosting, although I agree that it's a must, because with it they were spectacular! I think this will become a new family favorite!

      These cookies were nice and light! So simple to make, too! No powdered sugar, so I didn't make the icing, but we ate them up just fine, anyway! Thanks for sharing. :)

      These cookies were so puffy they looked like biscuits, and I didn't like how goopy and sticky the dough was either. I frosted them and added colored sprinkles, but I still didn't like how they looked. They were very lemony, and the frosting is a must. These didn't go over very well in our family, unfortunately.
