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.

Fantastic! Not too sweet, and not terribly difficult or time comsuming. In less than 2 hours, I had 2 delicious batches. Cookies are good with or without the glaze. It just adds a little bit of extra flavor. You could very easily use any flavor extract and even put a little food coloring in the glaze to make them festive. Next batch we're going to try almond flavor! Rather than spread the glaze, I made it a little thinner and dipped the cookies. Thanks for sharing Kim! This one is already a star in my dessert file!

If I don't have the lemon extract can I use fresh lemon juice?

I'm not sure where I went wrong but my cookies while tasty do not look like the photo. They cooked flat, not in a mound like the photo. I made a double batch in about three hours.

Pretty good. The shortening makes them super tender. However, I increased my baking time to 17 minutes because they weren't done in the center. Also, for the frosting I added straight lemon juice without water because I like a strong lemon flavor.
