We loved these! The cookie is sweet with a delicate touch of lemon. Then it gets even better with a tasty icing that is the perfect consistency. Finally, the pecan on top is just the right touch to compliment the sweetness and add some crunch. This is quite possibly my favorite sugar cookie I have made. When I made these, I realized too late that I did not have lemon extract, so I used lemon zest instead. For easier cleanup I used parchment paper instead of greasing my cookie sheet. The only problem I had was the dough getting stuck to the bottom of my glass when I was flattening the cookies. This was easily solved, however, by dipping the glass in sugar before flattening each cookie. If you like sugar cookies, I suggest trying these out!

My kids gobble these up, even without the icing. The dough freezes well also. Definitely a keeper! Thanks!

My brother and I made these cookies together and didn't think they would turn out great, but we were wrong! They turned out amazing! It is really easy and fun which is just what we were looking for. The frosting was delicious and so were the cookies! We loved the little, but noticeable, lemony flavor along with the cookies!
