This recipe makes a lot of terrific cookies! It's great for Christmas when all the kids and grandkids visit. They can help decorate the cookies-not to mention help eat them! Besides baking and decorating cookies and cakes, I enjoy taking long walks through our New York countryside.

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Mar. 24, 2014

Easy cookie to make and everyone loved them. I used 1 teaspoon lemon bakery emulsion (I found at cooking store) instead of lemon peel and they came out with a very nice lemon flavor. These are a keeper, will definitely make again.

Nice, light lemon flavor. Halved recipe and used 1 1/2 T of lemon extract instead of peel. I also topped with a lemon glaze. Light and tangy-sweet.

MY REVIEW

I would have liked more lemon flavor. I was actually surprised by the very little lemon flavor since we grated an entire lemon peel into this recipe. However, I did as one suggested and added the rest of the lemon juice in a second batch and that helped, but still would have liked a little more lemon flavor.

I used the juice of the whole lemon instaed of just two teaspoons. Other than that, this was PERFECT for my first experience with spritz cookies!

I made these cookies for a Bridal Shower and everyone liked them. I would certainly make them again as the lemon gave them a nice taste.
