Another reason, if you need one, to grown herbs.. These are so delightful, with just a hint of lemon thyme

These were lovely cookies! I admit to also playing with the recipe and added lemon zest to the dough and a lemon juice/icing sugar glaze, as did the previous reviewer. These cookies go very well with tea and will definitely be made on a regular basis. A definite keeper!

Delicious!!! I had a bunch of fresh lemon thyme so I used 2 Tbsp of that. I also added the zest of one lemon and a little lemon juice/confectioners sugar glaze as they were cooling. This one is a keeper. Would be great with tea.
