YUM! As a big lemon dessert person, I search high & low for decent lemon cookie recipes (no cake mix!!), and this one was a winner! It's still a tad soft and just lightly cakey in the center, but the edges were crisp and the flavor was really good. I followed the recipe as is, except I did not roll them out, just spooned them in sparse teaspoonfuls. I did put sugar on the tops, too. I usually prefer the lemon flavor to be more pronounced, but the light, delicate lemon flavor in this went well with it being a "butter cookie", so I really can't complain. I decided to make a simple, easy glaze to top them. I put about 1/4 cup of sugar in a glass mixing cup, added just enough lemon juice to barely wet it, then microwaved for 1 min 10 seconds, till bubbly. then I stirred in about 1.5 oz of cream cheese and mixed w/a fork until the cream cheese was blended through. The lemon cream cheese glaze really amped up this cookie, give it a try.
