I made these to be served with Mango Custard. I wouldn't really call these lemon cookies. They are tasty, toffee and I think would be better with almond extract to bring out the almond instead of inserting the lemon. I like the look. I will try again and use honey or agave as I prefer not to use corn syrup.

I have been trying to find a recipe that would be lacy beautiful and this one worked perfectly. I've tried others and they either fall apart or they are globs. These are a little fragile and you have to be careful handling them but they are goreous to look at and to munch on. Thanks for posting this one.
