    Leslie in Texas's Note:

    This crisp and buttery cookie is topped with a lemon glaze and is delicious with a mixed fruit salad, melon, or with my Sour Lemon Sorbet. Originally from an April 1884 issue of Bon Appetit magazine that featured light and refreshing lemon desserts. Start these the morning you plan to serve them; refrigeration time is not included in prep time.
