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!:)

This is an incredibly simple and quick recipe. I brought these to two different parties and each time everyone raved about them and asked for the recipe. The only problem with these cookies is that once you start eating them, it's hard to stop. My cookies came out a little puffier than the one pictured with this recipe.
