    These were very good. A nice not too sweet/heavy snack. I made a lemon glaze and we found we liked them better if we ate them just after dipping them in the glaze. Thanks a lot

    I liked these cookies, but next time I will add some grated lemon rind along with the extract to enhance the flavour. I mixed a little lemon juice with icing sugar and spread it on top of the cookies, quite tasty!

    I added 1/2 cup pecan pieces and about a total of 1 1/2 cups grated carrots. The lemon extract is what makes these so yummy. I just gave the first ones out of the oven to my boys and they are already asking for more. Thanks for a keeper recipe!


<p>September 15, 2007: Here's a photo of me and my two girls before leaving our hotel room to go to an Avett Brothers concert. We're all huge fans of the group. We're also huge fans of each other. It's fun to have adult children. <br /> <br /> <br />--- About me: I'm an artist, and art teacher to kids kindergarten age through 8th grade. My life whirls at a breakneck pace. I teach approximately 800 students, and have 30 different classes each week. It's crazy!!! The rewards, however, are the numerous hugs and good vibes I get from my students. If I didn't have my good-looking husband to stabilize me, I'd surely be sporting a straight-jacket. Oh, and did I mention my yarn obsession? I've made hundreds of crochet items in the past few months, and have a little shop on etsy. Check out my website when you have the time:</p> 8754768"
