THE best cookies I have ever made, I also made another batch and filled them with fudge for my husband who doesn't like lemon. Thanks for this keeper!

These are pretty good. My favorite part was the filling, I wasn't too impressed with the cookie.

Light and lemony. These delicate cookies would be wonderful with tea. When cooking I was afraid that the filling was not going to thicken, but I shouldn't have. They came out perfect. I followed others' advice and re-did the thumb print as soon as I pulled the cookies out of the oven. These are pretty too!

Wow, what a great cookie LL. I made these little treats for Valentines Day and they certainly did not disappoint. What a gem. The cookies are light, tender and melt in your mouth, with a lovely tart, lemon filling. The filling has a cornsyrup type of texture. Just wonderful, a new family favourite has been found. Thank you so much for sharing your recipe.

fabulous. I loved them, and so easy. tip, i used baking paper to get just a very light browning since these look so much prettier "white"

Great recipe--the cookies are so light and tender, and the filling is fantastic. I did have to reform the indentation after baking the cookies, but this is not a problem if you do it as soon as you remove the cookies from the oven--it needs to be done quickly before the cookies cool at all. Wonderful addition to my cookie trays--thanks for posting!

*Absolutely TDF* There are 27 recipes on RZ w/the words *Better Than Sex* in their title & none of them are cookie recipes. I know this because I checked after eating 1 of your cookies. IMHO, this recipe needs to be #28! I made a full recipe w/a 24 cookie yield, proving my instinct I made them larger than intended. The dough was *very* soft, but rolled easily in the palms of my hands w/care. The thumbprints nearly disappeared during baking, but I was watching & ready to fix that. When they came out of the oven, I used a rd plastic cap from a perfume bottle to reform the thumbprints while the cookies were still hot & soft. Worked like a charm! As good as the cookies are, the filling is the star here & is *pure lemon heaven* ! I will dust a few w/powd sugar for the pic & to be true to the recipe, but it is overkill IMO. They are just too good w/o it. Kudos to you for gifting us w/this 10* worthy & amazing recipe. :-)
