These are definitely a 5 star for flavor! Very lemony and delicious and I was really hoping to share them at DH's work today, but they are so delicate that I've got my family hovering over the sink to eat them. They just completely crumble. I think part of this is that they were getting over baked before the minimum time was up. I took them out at 19 minutes & it still turned out to be too long in my oven. I made just as directed and the glaze was quite thick, even with 6 teaspoons of lemon juice and about double the food coloring. Pouring it right away was not an option so I nuked it for a few seconds to melt it & was able to pour it on the cookie layer, but not spread it without ruining the cookie. I would like to try these again, reducing the cook time and making the glaze with less powdered sugar. I used a neon pink food coloring instead of red, to achieve more of a breast cancer pink.
