This is a very delicious cookie. Easy to make & was a big hit with everyone. I used the lemon flavoring and after baking I dusted the tops of the cookies with powdered sugar. The powdered sugar added a nice touch. Read More

This is amazing. I highly recommend it. I used lemon extract and it turned out great. The one thing is that you should not melt butter and let it cool but instead just let it warm a little to room temperature. Don't overmix!!! You will create the best cookie! Read More
