    This is a good cookie. I found it too sweet rolled in colored sugar, though my kids loved the process. I'm going to make these again but only dip the tops of the balls in colored sugar. Also, I found it was firm enough to roll without refrigeration. Tasty!

    These are wonderful cookies! Everyone loved them. Very soft and delicate, with the perfect amount of sweetness. No wonder they're called Angel Cookies - they're so heavenly! Thanks!

    These were great!! I added Maple extract in place of the lemon. A nice simple cookie. Thanks

    Very light tasting. My family kept eating them as they came out of the oven. Thank you for sharing.
