Good, moist cookie. Very quick and easy to prepare. I followed others' suggestions and dusted them woth icing sugar before they cooled. After the first batch, I added some lemon flavouring as I found the flavour very mild. My husband and kids polished these off very quickly!

I loved this recipe. This really hit the spot. They were so easy to make and so moist. I did try some white icing on them and that really set them off. This is a keeper. Thanks for the wonderful recipe.

I am torn when it comes to how to rate these cookies. They were good, but not great. My kids (ages 5 and 1) LOVED them. I liked them. I baked them on a foil-lined (and sprayed) cookie sheet at 350 for 10 minutes. I added 1/2 tsp lemon juice to the batter after tasting the first few cookies, and that helped a lot. I think topping these with some glaze would give them 5 stars for me, but I was actually out of powdered sugar when I made these. One great thing about them is that they are super easy.
