I absolutely love these cookies and so does my family. It's like have the perfectly sized mini cake. Had purchased them from an Italian bakery and just had to know how to make them myself. I make mine with lemon zest (from one lemon) instead of using the extract, it really gives it an authentic lemon flavor and its just right. I also cheat on the frosting, since I've never gotten the right consistency with the powdered sugar. I purchase a can of vanilla frosting (or any flavor you like) and zap it in the microwave for about 40 seconds (or until it is nice and thin - also don't spend the extra money on the one they claim is just for microwaves - just remember to remove ALL of the foil top and lid), stir and start dipping the full cookie. I then place them on a wire rack with a jelly roll pan underneath to catch the drippings and immediately sprinkle with confetti decorations, mini-nonparells, etc.
