this recipe is horrible. I did follow the recipe exactly. the dough was sticky and difficult to transfer to sheets. and then when i waited a couple (I stress only 2 minutes) before taking the baked cookies off the sheet to put onto the cooling racks, the cookies were completely stuck to the sheets. I was unable to remove them. And although the bits and pieces of the cookies that I managed to get did taste good, this was more trouble than it was worth. Frustrated and disappointed, I will NEVER make this recipe again.

These were so easy and everyone loved them. I used two different sizes of biscuit cutters instead of cutting 3" squares and ended up with about 40 cookies total. I also used parchment paper on my cookie sheets and removed the cookies immediately from the oven; no sticking or any other problems. I thought the icing was too thick (I like really thin icing and this was probably the perfect thickness for piping) and doubled the lemon juice and milk amounts to get the consistency I wanted. Incredibly good cookies, but if you are in a hurry or impatient - don't use this recipe.
