Delicioius! I took another reviewer's advice and added lemon extract as well as lemon juice. I also only made half a batch and they turned out delicious!

These are a really nice cookie, although not really that lemony. They have a great texture! I was looking for an easy lemon cookie/cookie bar recipe that didn't include lemon rind in the recipe. I'd make them again, but with lemon extract.
