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.
These are my 'go to cookie' ! Easy and fast. Everyone loves them. They are great when you have to take a bunch of cookies to a function or as a Thank You.
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!
