YUM! These are very delicate in flavor. Just a hint of spice and not too sweet. I did use an extra egg in the batter by accident but they were so light and puffy that I would do the same again. I also rolled mine in powdered sugar instead of flour for just a touch more sweetness. My children LOVE these and I didn't expect them to since they are not very sweet. Hint: Bake just until edges are set for light soft cookies; do not brown. Read More

I wasn't familiar with this type of cookie so I can't speak to its authenticity but it was easy to prepare and had a good taste although slightly dry texture (which is probably characteristic for this type of recipe). My family enjoyed it slightly more than I did -- they very much enjoyed it. Interestingly the aftertaste is actually MORE appealing (to me). My family said they'd want me to make it again. Read More

I have never tasted these cookies before. I was making them for a friend in Florida. I think they turned out very good. definitely not a sweet cookie but loved the citrusy flavour. I am planning to make them for my family this Easter. I might brown them a little bit more! Read More
