We loved these!! The cookie itself is wonderful in flavor and so light in texture. The frosting added a surprisingly delicious addition to an already wonderful cookie. If you like lemon then you need this recipe in your holiday catalogue!
The frosting tasted fine but, was very runny even after adding more sugar.
with a few alterations these were phenomenal. for our convenience we used 1/2 teaspoon Nutmeg in place of 1 teaspoon cardamom, and light brown sugar instead of dark brown sugar and they were still delicious. we more than doubled the lemon juice in the icing and used 1/2 cup less confectioner's sugar and recommend doing so. the recipe makes twice as much icing as you need, so maybe just make a double batch of cookies!
