I was so stoked about making this recipe. I followed the instructions exactly with the exception of taking Mary Callan's suggestions on these supstitutions: "Full Review Apr. 6, 2007The BEST lemon cookie ever!!! I used 1 1/4 cup sugar, zest of two very large lemons, juice of three very large lemons (almost a full cup) and 1/2 cup of canola. Fantastic - I guarantee!!!" Unfortunately, this did not turn out as it should have. I took Juanita (the recipe maker's) suggestion and put all the ingredients into the food processor until it thickened to a dough. However, the batter never thickened into a dough. Instead, it was the more like the consistency of icing. I thought it might help to place the mixure in the refrigerator (like other suggested to remove the thin consistency of the oil--even though I added much less oil than the recipe called for), but it never thickened up to a dough consistency. Very disappointing. I hate wasting food and I had to throw away this entire recipe as it was useless. Now, I am wondering what went wrong. It may be the baking properties of lemon juice and oil. I am on a mission now to find out. If anyone has any suggestions or comments, let me know.
