"These were good and easy to make. Not sure if I liked them or not... Lemon really isn't my style in cooking."

"these were very good. Nice lemon flavor. I used a cookie press, but I think they would be fine just flattened out if you don't have one."

"I don't have a cookie press! Can I just make little balls and flatten them with a sugar-dipped glass?"
