Reviews for Lemon Refrigerator Cookies
"These are good. The only thing the recipe is missing is the filling to make them sandwiches. Just make a cream cheese frosting and stuff these babies."
"These cookies were so tiny - one inch in diameter. I followed the directions exactly, rolling into 2 nine-inch logs. Not sure they would bake properly if I didn't follow directions."
"The lemon is in the lemon extract."
"This is either the wrong recipe, or the wrong name. Where is the lemon??KLH"
