Made these lemon cookies (recipe from ). 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. Thanks!
