I've made these cookies over the last two years and the recipe works great for large cutout cookies! The kids love to roll out the dough and decorate them after. These are supposed to be "tea Biscuits", but I love them rolled out thin and cut with cookie cutters big and small.



This recipe was difficult to roll out whether refigerated or not. It needs more lemon extract.The cookies were hard as a rock.After making them I checked internet resources to be told NEVER MELT butter; it makes cookies too hard which is true!



These are good if you want a real light dessert or snack -- they are not very sweet. I doubled the lemon extract, which worked out well.
