Made these lemon cookies (recipe from http://www.ldsliving.com/story/64185-food-dish-cookie-recipe-contest-winner-recipe ).
Came out absolutely delicious, but with a bitter after taste. What went wrong? Also, there was so much sugar that it crystalized when it cooked, so it sticks to my teeth. The sweet/sour ratio is right, until you get to the after taste. Does the bitterness come from the lemon I chose (which looked and smelled good); or from having so much sugar, or was it something else?
To fix the recipe, should I reduce the sugar (and risk it being too sour) or increase the flour, or do you suggest something else?
Tasted amazing before cooking - like lemon cream cheese frosting! So I'd like to salvage the recipe, if I can.
