My sister made these last week, using 1 tsp lemon extract. They were very good, and remind us of the famous cookies made by Archway, but without the lemon glaze. This is a wonderful recipe. Thanks for sharing!

Very good! I used self-rising flour and omitted the baking soda. Will use a bit more lemon flavor next time.
