After reading reviews that the cookie part was too dry, I added a little lemon juice and a heaping tablespoon of plain yogurt to the dough. I also just frosted the cookies with the filling, rather than making sandwiches, and dusted the tops with powdered surgar. The result was a delicious, tender cookie, like a bite-sized lemon bar. Yum!
Well I cant say I was very impresssed with these. As was mentioned above, cookies were very very dry. They tasted like a bad version of a sugar cookie. The filling didnt work either..was way too thin even after much effort. We substituted the icing in the whoopie pie which we were making at the same time for the above icing and it was so much better.
Lemon flavored treats are one of my favorites and these really hit the spot!! The filling was easy to make, it just took it a while to thicken up..Have patience, it's worth the wait!!! Thanks for a wonderful treat!!!
These are so good, light and lemony. Like the previous reviewer, I rolled my dough into logs and then sliced and baked. I didn't have a fresh lemon for zest, so I used some pure lemon extract in the dough. The lemon curd filling did take a long time to thicken, (15-20 mins. of stirring) but I expected that. My dough wasn't dry at all; I only put 3/4 of the flour in at first, and then added more, little by little, until the dough was a nice consistency.
I made the regular recipe,but instead of the filling, I made the dough into thumbprints, then added seedless raspberry preserves,then baked, they were great
My second variation was to omit the lemon, add vanilla, and chopped semi sweet chocolate chips, they were awesome.
i am sooo glad i found this recipe!These have to be the best lemon cookies i have ever had!The cookie itself is not very sweet with just a hint of lemon and the filling is sweet and lemony so together there perfect!!To make them a little neater looking i rolled the dough into 2 inch thick logs and sliced them about 1/4 inch thick then i lightly poked the tops with a fork giving it a little design.I DID NOT have any problem with the cookie being dry maby because they were sliced thin and i cooked them till just set so there still soft.I allso added about 1 1/2 cups of powderd suger to the filling to thicken it (some water spilled over in my filling making it to loose) All in all this is a wonderful recipe and it will be a regular in my cookie makeing.Thank you for the recipe!
YUM! In response to previous critics that thought the cookies were too dry, I added about 1/2 a cup of plain yogurt and a fair amount of lemon juice to the dough. I cut down on the salt and substituted half of the flour with whole wheat flour. In the filling, I added a little powdered sugar because I couldn't get it to a perfect thickness. For flavor, I added a fair amount of nutmeg and cinnamon. The result was quite tasty!
I loved these! Whispers is a great name as they are so light and just melt in your mouth. Only change I made is I heated the filling in the microwave stirring after every 30 seconds. Turned out yummy!
