I was just looking for a recipe for a soft lemon cookie. I made the right choice. This has a nice tangy lemon flavor and it's soft and chewy. These cookies made me so happy. I used about 1/2 again as much lemon extract in the cookies as called for and about 1/2 again as much lemon juice in the glaze as called for. It was perfect!!!
