The first reviewer is right: a cookie press makes the gooey dough simple to handle and the cookies don't need 20 minutes to bake.
These are very Italian cookies, not overly sweet, with a subtle eggy flavor set off by the tart lemon icing. The outside is sturdy and the inside tender and rather dry. The frosting dries like a fondant - hard, glossy and stackable. This cookie will appeal to adults more than to children. It's great with coffee and better the second day than it is fresh. These will ship well. The recipe as printed makes plenty of extra frosting, possibly enough for a second batch of cookies. Next time I'll use more lemon juice and less water in the frosting.
