This was exactly what I was looking for! Wonderful!!! Tart, buttery and tender. Girl Scout Lemon Coolers have nothing on these lovelies! I measured my flour before I sifted which gave me balls that didn't spread or change much at all in the baking. (The reviewer who commented that they spread may have measured AFTER sifting, which I USUALLY do). I needed 125 cookies for Christmas gifts and 4 recipes only gave me 100 - my cookie scoop wasn't working well because of the stiffness of the dough so mine weren't perfectly uniform. I under mixed being concerned about them turning hard. No such problem, a few fell apart in my hands and had to be eaten (no hardship, believe me). I also wondered if they would be lemony enough and considered adding some zest. I was glad I hadn't though - the sugar coating is very tart and needs the balance of the subtle dough. Also, I made 2 recipes of the coating and had most of it left at the end. I will have enough to last me a very long time, again, no hardship. I did use the bag idea, but one cookie at a time and VERY gently burying and unburying it. Give 'em a try if you are a lemon lover!
