    This is an easy recipe and very tasty! We added a bit more lemon peel to make them more lemony. I baked these with my boyfriend's 14 year old daughter and we both had fun making them together. He liked being the official taster :) I served them after making a salad with hot smoked salmon, butter lettuce, oranges, sliced almonds and a light balsamic dressing, and Turkish mercimek corbasi soup (a red lentil soup finished with lemon and sumac seasoning). A girlfriend and I swap dinner duty every Sunday before watching Downton Abbey together and we are both trying to eat healthier meals. One or two of these cookies were perfect after this meal and we didn't feel too guilty eating them!

    I will definitely have to double the recipe next time. These went to fast at my house! I also liked making these with my daughter. She always snitched little pieces of dough when I'm not looking so I like how with these, I didn't have to work about raw egg consumption!

    My cousin and I Made these wonderful little gems my grandson just popped one in his mouth and his face just melted along with his cookie. So easy it will become a favorite for Grammy's cookie jar.?

    Made with oranges rather than lemons and the cookies were wonderful. Can't wait yo try the recipe with limes. So easy to make also. Definitely a keeper!

    Made these for a baby shower and they were the perfect little treat and displayed very nicely. Instead of "Drop dough by level spoonfuls 2 inches apart onto parchment paper-lined baking sheets, using a 1-inch cookie scoop." I just rolled into balls and they turned out nicely.

    The only problem I had with these is they are SO GOOD they don't last long, (next time I'll quadruple the recipe). The perfect chew and yummy, as yummy can be. I doubled up on the fresh lemon juice cuz I like a little bite in my bite. They are better than lemon squares, in my opinion!

    These were unbelievable! So tender and perfect ~ I loved 'em and so did everyone who was lucky enough to get a few. Next time, I'm going to double to recipe because they were gone in no time!

    Pretty delicious, a little explosion of cookie, lemon, and powdered sugar in your mouth! It is basically a lemon Mexican wedding cookie. Make sure that you let the cookies cool completely before dusting with powdered sugar.

    These were easy to make, light, and perfectly tart. More tart than sweet, but I was using a very potent lemon. Great for gifts, tea accompaniment, etc.
