    These were delicious cookies and definitely made five dozen. I really like the taste of the lemon in the cookies. I found that I need way more than 1 tsp of water for the glaze because 1 tsp just barely moistened and clumped it together. But eventually it became the type of glaze I wanted. I found that it really was necessary to grease my baking sheets because of how sticky the cookies were. I even greased my teaspoon! All in all, it was a very good cookie!

    I only made 1/2 the recipe cause there are not alot of lemon lovers here, BUT they are gone so I will make a whole batch this week. I will also used the lemon juice in the glaze the next time. These are a great cookie and sure to be a Christmas hit here also! Thanx katie!!
