I took the reviews suggestions and added like a 1/2 tsp more lemon extract.I also just did drop cookies with them and made a lemon glaze to put on them with confectioners sugar,milk and lemon extract instead of the sugar,they were soooo delicious !!!!!

I don't know if its because I beat the dough a lot or what but these just melt in your mouth! Maybe use lemon juice instead of water for the sugar dip.

I am confused as to why this recipe calls for butter AND oil? I see it got great reviews, but I have never seen this before. Anyone??

These were excellent. The lemon flavor is very subtle. Next time, I will add more lemon extract for a tad more lemon flavor. Overall, a great cookie and easy to make!
