Top Review by Sweet Irene

I don't know how I skipped rating this recipe that I've made several times over the past year. These cookies are excellent, crisp and have a subtle lemon flavor. They're great plain, but I actually like them better when I glaze them with an icing made of just straight lemon juice, a little lemon extract and powdered sugar, brush on with a pastry brush and allow to dry for about a half hour. The icing gives them a "wow" factor, very lemony. Thanks for posting a really great recipe!
