    These are delicious! We made them this afternoon and shared them with neighbors. The lemon adds a nice element to the flavor. Also, to those who thought the lemon flavor was too mild, I'm wondering if you used lemon juice instead of lemon flavor? I thought these pressed easily and I had an old school twist cookie press that was my grandma's. We liked these so much better than the spritz recipes that use shortening! The cream cheese element is nice, too!

    These were ok. I don't taste any lemon flavor at all. The texture is a little weird also. Almost tastes like it isn't cooked enough.

    I agree the flavor was quite mild and I added a bit of lemon juice. I also had to add the egg white to increase the moisture enough to make these fall out properly when baked. The dough was a bit too dry to "Spritz" properly. I made them work though. Yum!

    Not bad. Lemon flavor is quite mild. If I make them again, I'd double the lemon.
