    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?

    well, it say's thawed lemonade concentrate, so that would be the frozen kind.

    It says thawed lemon concentrate so I would guess it's the canned frozen lemonade.

    I am unclear as to if you are using powdered concentrate of frozen concentrate. Some one please advise as they sound delicious!
