I'm sorry, these just didn't work for us. I guess we like sweeter cookies.

These little cookies are absolutely delicious! Easy to make too. I measured them in a tablespoon measure and got exactly 23 cookies. If you want them yellow, I think you should double the colouring as mine didn't really change. I don't care though - *tasty*. Made for PRMR and will be making them again. Thanks!

I used lemon peel of 1 lemon. And I used the 2 drops of yellow food coloring. I didn't roll the cookies in sugar. And we liked them that way. I cooked them almost 14 minutes. They are very lemony. Delicious. Thanks Sam. Made for Please Review My Recipe.
