These didn't turn out as I had expected - pretty disappointing, actually. The first problem is that the recipe's serving size is way off, as a few other reviewers have mentioned. I got twelve two inch cookies. I think this recipe would be good as a starting point, but it's definitely not quite right. There is far too much butter compared to other ingredients and not enough flavoring elements; the cookies ended up tasting like butter with a touch of lemon. If I were to do this over again, I would probably add lemon juice and maybe more lemon zest, maybe even a little more salt to bring out the sweetness. In addition, when I mixed the flour in, I was left with a pile of crumbs rather than dough, and I had to work the crumbs by hand for several minutes until it was even able to be rolled out. I wonder if the cookies would benefit from the addition of extra liquid, again that could be where some lemon juice might improve the recipe.
