      Lovely little cookies with amazing frosting. Very fragile, but if eaten with proper respect, also very wonderful. Made for OZ/NZ swap October 2008.

      I followed the recipe to the 'T'. Love the lemony flavor, however the cookies were so tender they fell apart if you didn't eat them whole. I too had problems getting them to stick together, so used my hands with dampened with lemon juice. Once they were cold they sliced nicely.

      Yum. Considering Kittencal's review I used a heaping 1/3rd of a cup of powdered sugar. I also used a finely milled whole wheat pastry flour to up the fiber just a tad. This is like a lovely lemon shortbread cookie. The only issue I had was that the icing amount wasn't nearly enough for us and I had to double it. There was no way I could dip the cookies into the icing because it was too thick. So I had to spoon it on and spread it out, which takes more icing. Oh well, we loved them anyway! Thanks so much!
