These were very yummy! I used margarine instead of the unsalted butter and they still turned out really well! The cookie dough didn't seem real lemony, but with the lemon glaze they had a wonderful flavor. I will definitely make these again!

I did like these, but they weren't as lemony as I was excpecting. Also, I had to make a lot more glaze to have enough. And mine only mae about 20 cookies, but I seem to always have that problem with cookie recipes, I guess I always make them too big, lol. What can I say? Who doesn't love a huge cookie.
