    Okay, but not even close to the same texture or flavor as Ham 'N Goody's lemon cookies. Too tart & cake-like for me & I even used less lemon juice than the recipe called for.

    Not the same as Ham N Goody's. They were to cake like. Ham N Goody's is a thin, dense cookie with a little saltiness to it. The baking soda and baking powder made them bitter and rise to much.

    After testing this recipe against about four other cookie recipes, I chose it to give to my family as Christmas presents. I made about ten dozen of them in two days. I am sick of them now :). But I will say, they were pretty easy to make and tasted good. They were also very cheap for me to make since I had pretty much everything already on hand to make them. I think they cost about 5 cents a cookie to make. And, once I got the hang of the recipe, I was able to make them very quickly. The only modification I made was to roll the dough into balls which I then rolled in sugar and flattened into discs. I found this to be much easier than rolling the dough out. I am curious to see what they would taste like if the cookie dough was modified and orange juice was used in the glaze instead of lemon. I definitely plan to try that out sometime. I'll let you know how it works!
