    Bonnie G #2's Note:

    Another recipe from my favorite magazine "Taste of Home" I love Lemon and these are described "light cookies that will melt in your mouth - just the right sweet with a cup of coffee or tea." A tip given states "to freez drop cookie dough, drop dough in amounts recipe calls for onto bakiing sheet and freeze until solid. Once frozen, place cookies into a resaealable plastic bag. When ready to bake, let thaw on a baking sheet for 30 min. before baking." Great idea for future uses. Prep time does not include refrigeration. Update, thanks Carrol for some great hints - have a feeling this may be one of those recipes that needs some help, will try these with the added sugar to see if it helps and the extra lemon zest. This may be one of those recipes that needs a lot of help.

      I wouldn't call these Lemon Lovers...the lemon flavor is more delicate. However with the frosting they are pretty good. I used 1 1/2 teaspoon of lemon peel rather than the 1 teaspoon because i could tell they needed the extra flavoring. The cookies are similar in texture to a shortbread which technically they are. Next time i will use at least 1/3 to 1/2 cup of sugar instead of 3 teaspoons to the cookies since I like cookies sweeter. Made and reviewed for Pac Spring 2009.
