A melt in your mouth lemony treat! Ofcourse- used butter. LOVED these! Used generous tsp lemon zest + an extra little splash of lemon juice. Great texture. 15 minutes in the oven. A real keeper-Yum!

Great recipe. I used butter instead of margarine. I also put in 4 tsps (packed) of lemon zest and no orange zest. I rolled my dough into balls and rolled them in the egg white right away. I didn't bother chilling them, mainly due to the fact that I wanted to eat them as soon as I could. I baked for about 15 minutes so that the cookies were soft and moist in the middle. My cookies also looked way cuter than the ones in the picture, but that was probably because I rolled them into balls.
