      While this wasn't what I was after, they turned out lovely. They are light, flaky (no lard, all butter), and very delicate tasting. Leaving them on the parchment to cool is an easy way to keep from breaking them. The lemon wasn't as pronounced as I was hoping for, but perhaps next time I'll toss in a dab of lemon juice. Very soft dough, needs either chilling, a marble board, or lots of flour--I used the latter and they were still very tender. Thank you for sharing this recipe.
