"Absolutely deeeeelish =) Easy to make. After they cooled a bit I dusted them with powdered sugar. Yummy."

"I didn't like this cookie--it was easy to make, but didn't like the flavor--maybe it would be better if it had lemon zest for a more "real" lemon taste."

"This was such a good shortbread cookie recipe. I've made them with the lemon and heath bars as well as with chocolate pudding and coconut! I think any comob would be good!"

"If you like shortbread cookies, you'll like these. I wasn't sure about the mixture of lemon and chocolate, but it worked!"

"I haven't made them but from what others have wrote, I will be making them as, my husband HAS too have his cookies AND either,yogurt or an Equate drink every day for lunch. These sound like he'd like them.I may not have the lemon pudding either,as one of the ladies ask about using vanilla pudding.Don't think it'd be the same consistancy as the lemon but I'll try it to see how they turn out. Thanks for the great recipe sharing!
