    Can these be frozen for a week or two (with or without glaze)?
  2. Jasmine C.
    Is it ok if I use vegitabel oil if I don't have shortening?
  3. Diane M.
    If I don't have the lemon extract can I use fresh lemon juice?

    I'm not sure where I went wrong but my cookies while tasty do not look like the photo. They cooked flat, not in a mound like the photo. I made a double batch in about three hours.

    Pretty good. The shortening makes them super tender. However, I increased my baking time to 17 minutes because they weren't done in the center. Also, for the frosting I added straight lemon juice without water because I like a strong lemon flavor.
