Needs more lemon, but pretty good. Was able to make about 3x the amount of cookies that the recipe says it yeilds.

Delicious. I wanted to try a different sugar cookie recipe for the holiday's this year and stumbled across this lemon version. They were fabulous and everyone loved them. I made the dough around Thanksgiving and froze until about a week before Christmas, it worked out great! The recipe made 56 medium cookies. Will definitely made again next year (if not sooner)!

Delicious cookie, I used half water, half fresh lemon juice for the icing, it added an extra zing.

The dough was very dense, making it hard to work with after it had chilled, but it goes a long way. I froze half the dough to bake during the holidays. A good sugar cookie, but as another review noted, the recipe needs more lemon. I will try these again with lemon extract or more juice/zest.

Wow! Great recipe! Upped the lemon rind to 1 T. Great icing: 1 c. confectioner's sugar, 2T. milk, 2T. corn syrup, 1/4 tsp. lemon extract. Adds a real zing! Enjoy! Made 32 large heart cookies.

Delicious cookies! I love that they are relatively low in sugar and butter (as compared to most cookie recipes), and the texture is wonderful. I used the limes I had in my fridge instead of lemon and found that a lot of the flavor baked out, leaving a subtle hint of lime. I'll definitely keep this recipe, and I"m going to double the lime zest next time. Thanks!

These are fabulous. Recipe needs more lemon so I double the lemon. I even add lemon juice and zest to the icing and top with sparkle sugar! Yummy...

Rather bland. Could use more lemon.

I added twice as much lemon rind and there was only a very subtle flavour. Also, I found the cookie to be very tough...it was hard in an unpleasant way. Maybe it's the butter to flour ratio. Disappointing since lemon cookies sound really good.

This recipe is BUNK! Beware.The amount of baking soda in this recipe is too much it will ruin the batch. A teaspoon should be enough Either this is intentional or a mistake.
