      I too wish I had read the reviews. The batter doesn't taste like lemon at all. I used a scoop and the batter spread all over the pan. I am very disappointed. Perhaps Grandma2969 needs to re evaluate her recipe. I will cut them into cookies and frost them

      I wish I had read the review before I attempted these. Mine were also big and flat. I added another 3/4 c flour and they were still flat. I must agree with the last reviewer that the cookie/pancake had a great lemon flavor.

      These tasted fabulous but they spread all over the pan and were huge. They got so big and so flat that I couldn't make them into the whoopie pies. I just frosted the cookies instead.They taste wonderful, lemony and delicious, but there was no way they would be whoopie pies. Maybe I did something wrong. They didn't last long in any case. Yummy.
