"This is my great-grandmother's recipe. It has survived four generations and is still at the top of my cut-out recipe list. The secret is to roll the dough extra thin! Frost with buttercream frosting for best taste." — smithgangMom

Awesome! I omitted the lemon extract and added a 1/4 tsp of cinnamon instead and they turned out delicious. Really do roll them thin, 1/8 of an inch...they turned out great! Wonderful Christmas cookie!!!
I just wanted to thank you for sharing this recipe. It`s one of our favorites almost like a buttery graham cracker. It`s become a staple for the lunch box.
I added 8oz of candied fruit for a bit of color. I also made the mistake of adding cooked oatmeal instead of dry oats. However, this turned the recipe into an excellent batch of drop cookies that were very soft, but held together nicely.
These cookies were tasty, but they were a bit dry. I used orange extract instead of lemon, and they turned out nicely.
We loved the addition of oats! I used powdered lemon peel instead of extract.
Made this for Faceless Frenzy 2013. I couldn't decide between a sugar cookie and an oatmeal cookie and this one is a perfect combination. I made a half batch and used 1/4 teaspoon lemon juice instead of extract. I also added a bit of lemon zest, more zest will be added next time, a nice surprise for the taste buds! I'll freeze what I don't eat tonight and frost them later. I will make these again. (If you don't want to frost, add a slice of bread to your airtight cookie jar to keep the cookies soft.)
This is my absolute FAVORITE recipe. I made NO changes and my family says these are the BEST!!!!
These are really easy and good. I didn't have lemon extract, but instead added the 1/4 tsp of cinnamon as another suggested. Will add another 1/4 tsp next time. but the kids love them! I did not cut them out, but i just used a scoop and they were great!
