wonderful lemon taste. Easy enough for my 3 year old to help.

Being a patissier who was interested by the absolute simplicity of the recipe I gave it a whirl, and after the first few came out of the oven, tried to make a few sensible corrections in order to see if the recipe could be altered for improvement. In the end, it's just not a very good recipe. Made as is, these cookies are dry and floury tasting. For the sort of texture you end up with, you'd be better off flavour-wise by going for a variation on shortbread with citrus.

I added about 1/2 t each of vanilla and baking powder and did not let the batter rest out of impatience. They turned out quite well-very tender and light.

Although this cookie was very easy and tasty, I was looking for a crispier, thinner cookie. Probably won't make it again.
