These cookies are wonderful. Definately melt in your mouth. I just made my first batch and gave them to a group of people to taste test for me and everyone loved them. Light and flaky and nice and lemoney.
I did make one change - I added the juice of 1/2 fresh lemon to cookie and frosting recipies. I also made only 1/2 frosting recipe and it was plenty. My church is having a fundraiser in a couple of weeks and I'm in charge of a cookie and lemonade stand. These are definately going to be there.
Made these last night, and they just seem to melt away in your mouth, just making room for the next one. We only made half the amount of frosting and found that was enough, because they are great without it. We also dredged these in powdered sugar only, and they just made us get more butter out for another batch. Made for my Great Grandfather for Fathers Day, and he will sure enjoy staying home with a cup of tea.
Since I've more or less got all the time in the world (or at least a very flexible cooking schedule) making these tasty little buggers was no problem at all, & well worth the time it took! The only problem is that they don't last very long! Ah, well . . . Thanks much for sharing! [Made & reviewed as a thank you to a chef-with-a-camera in the Help a Camera-less Chef Game #5]
