      Delicious lemon shortbread!! Rather than roll into balls, I spread the dough out on a silpat on a half-sheet pan and baked it. I let it sit in a turned-off oven for about ten to twelve minutes, then removed the pan to a rack and scored the cookies using a square cookie cutter. I also sprinkled the top of the dough with some sanding sugar just before baking. Very pretty, very delicious.

      Made it exactly as the recipe says except I only had a lime so I used that for the rind. So delicious and delicate looking but actually a very sturdy cookie. Thanks for the recipe!

      the cookies were really good when i made them. the dough came out very soft so i used the teaspoons instead of making them into balls. i decorated them with candied orange peel and ground pistachios :) this recipe was very easy!:)
