      This is a wonderful recipe! I've been making these for years from a BHG cookbook. I was glad to find that someone posted it online since I don't have the book anymore. One thing I remember doing differently is adding a topping to the cookie for more lemon flavor. Just mix a little sugar and lemon juice together (not sure of the ratio) and brush over the cookies while they are still hot.

      I liked these. Good and homemade. They were light as a feather and all gone in a flash! Really moist, little cookies. I love lemon and will increase lemon zest a bit next time. Thank-you for posting.
