      These are lovely with your coffee. In consideration of jdoe's review I added a 1/2 tsp of lemon extract. The lemon flavor was still very mild. I had to use a good bit of extra flour in handeling the dough as mine was very soft and on the sticky side. They took the full 20 mins to brown. The final word is that they are still yummy :D

      Nice texture with a subtle lemon flavor. Next time I'll consider adding some lemon juice in addition to the zest as we like things a bit more lemony. Thanks for contributing a yummy recipe!
