This was on the back of the box for the Wilton tiered cooling racks that I bought on clearance. I'm putting it here for safe keeping.

Good, but I found the white chocolate chips to overwhelm the lemon. Would add more lemon zest and juice. If you notice your cookies are too dense watch the amount of flour used. Stirring your flour and spooning it verses scooping should prevent tough cookies; though weighing it is always safest. Also, glazed mine with 1/4 c. confectioner's sugar and 2 tbsp. lemon juice (I just love lemon glazes!)
