I chose to make the lime version of these. The dough came together well and felt similar to a shortbread dough. I refrigerated for 4 hours as stated in the recipe. It was when I started slicing them that my problems began. I only got 18 out of the dough so I thought I must have sliced them too thick, I suppose they were about 1/4 inch thick. However when I pulled them out of the oven after 8 minutes I found that if anything I should have cut them thicker. They had spread quite a bit and were very thin. They also weren't done so I put them back in the oven for a further 2 minutes. Because they were thin I had some trouble getting them off the cookie sheet, I lost about half the batch that way. It's a shame I can't rate these higher because my daughters said that those I managed to salvage did taste really good. Maybe it was something I did and someone else will have more luck. Thanks for letting me try.

This wasn't bad. I left them in a few minutes longer. I also added a bit too much flour, just a bit, so I squeezed half a lemons juice into the batter. But, I like lemon a lot and I like it stronger. It's not bad. Maybe needs more sugar as a result of the added lemon.

These are easy to make and SO tasty... I had never baked cookies on my own before and I was so eager to nibble on something sweet that I didn't take the time to put the dough in the refrigerator. Does that step really make that much of a difference? Because I can't imagine these cookies tasting any better!

I tried a recipe with just a slight variation before I found this exact one and this one is much tastier due to the use of the juices, not just the zest. Also if you cut the slice in 1/2 it looks more realistic like a fruit slice.
