Lemon Supreme Cookies

"I made these cookies for Stephen and Kelly to sell at their lemonade stand. Gee, how long ago was that now? ;) They were gone in a flash. Tart and sweet, all at the same time. Brings back wonderful memories. (These are slightly different from some others here on Zaar.)"

    These were very good little cookies. I really liked the texture and they were so pretty. I was hoping for more lemon flavor, and even added double the lemon juice. I will make these again - they were simple - but perhaps a little lemon flavored icing next time. Thanks for posting!

    A good cookie. It came out slightly crispy, but still a little soft in the middle. I didn't have a lemon to zest (usually don't), so will use 2 tsp lemon juice next time. I was going to take a picture, but the kids got to the cookies first.

    Simple, delicious recipe. Of course I had to mess with it. I used 1/3 cup butter and omitted the shortening. I doubled the lemon juice and zest, and added 1/3 cup blueberries. The blueberries should have made up for the lost volume from the shortening, but I only ended up with 20 cookies. I'll make the balls on the small side next time! These held up great in the fridge and had a lovely texture. YUM!

    Just made these cookies to put in lunches tomorrow......YUM!!! We all had to try them tonight and I think I'll be making more VERY SOON!! The only thing I did differently was added 1/2 tsp lemon extract instead of the Lemon zest, only because I didn't have any lemons. But it was still VERY YUMMY!! Thanks for this recipe!! It was Easy AND Yummy.
