Quite nice. The cookies are puffy and cake like. The baking time was dead on when I used heaped teaspoons of the batter which as the recipe says is quite sticky. I added the zest of one lemon to it as well and would add more the next time along with more lemon extract. I have had so many requests for my variation on this recipe I can't tell you. It's a great basic starting place.
These were not my favorite. It's not that it was a bad recipe it's just that they didn't live up to all the rave reviews in my opinion. Yes they were cake like and the texture was great! They weren't quite has lemony as I had hoped for and they were kinda bland. Even though they weren't my favorite I'm still glad I tried this recipe. Thanks anyway Patti!:o)
Very tasty cakelike cookie. My cookie scoop made cookies a little too big so I used tea spoons. A drop the size of a jawbreaker gumball worked best. The icing is a must but a little extra lemon extract and some yellow food coloring pepped it up nicely. These were divine with a cup of black coffee. YUM!
I agree with everybody about how good they are! However I have made these several times and because it is such a wet dough I added almost 3/4 cup more flour and refrigerate for one hour and they are perfect! And oh so delicious!
This cookie is amazing! It has just the right amount of sweetness. I did go a little heavy on the lemon extract after reading some reviews. To make it even lower in calories I used egg substitute 1% milk and cut the glaze in half. With these changes it is only 72 calories per cookie. I didn't use shortening either I used unsalted butter (had to be a little bad)
Really yummy cookies! I loved them -- perfect for giving away on Christmas cookie platters. I also really liked how easy the recipe was. The cookies taste like something my grandmother would make, but were much easier! Note: These cookies taste equally as delicious with orange extract in the dough and icing. Also, make sure to use the parchment paper called for when baking the cookies. Without it the cookies tend to brown too much on the bottom.
These turned out perfectly. First of all though I wouldn't call them "balls"- they are more cookie-shaped with a cake-like consistency. I added more lemon extract to the batter; just taste the batter as you add to get to where you want. I also added a bit more extract to the icing and more water as well- 1 spoon at a time until I got the desired consistency. I put a few drops of yellow food coloring into the icing too so they screamed LEMON. Big success.
I am giving these 3 stars they were okay and a good place to start. For me a lemon cookie needs more lemon. I will make these again but instead of lemon extract I will use lemon zest in the dough and lemon juice in the icing.
