      I baked these for my latest catering gig...a pig roast.... and served them with fresh strawberries.....after I watched 12 dozen cookies disappear, I knew I had a winner. I used half shortening and half real butter. It made a chewy/crisp on the outside cookie. I also added 3/4 tsp of lemon extract. They are STILL talking about the cookies.....and there were lots of other wonderful dishes there!

      Awesome recipe! These cookies have a wonderful chewy texture that I love! (I did replace the shortening with butter, and it seemed to work just fine! :))

      I used store bought lemon peel, about a tablespoon plus a little lemon juice. They are really very pretty cookies.
