Melt In Your Mouth Honey Lemon Merry Christmas Cookies

These are a Christmas family tradition at our house and they don't last long. Even better (more moist and very sweet) the second and third day if kept in an air tight container.

Don't say yuck until you've made these correctly. This recipe requires shortening- 1/3 c as another reviewer noted. And it must be shortening, not margarine or butter. Also the dough must be chilled for 2 hours (or more- I've made the dough 1 day in advance. I've made these since I was a kid and they are my sons' favorite Christmas cookie. I watch these cookies in the oven- 10-12 minutes is usual depending on your oven-know your oven! I do not frost the cookies, but will put colored sugar on some of them. I agree that the dough is tricky- however, if you chill the dough and have a cold rolling pin and a cold surface (granite/ solid surface), the cookies come out fine- you may also want to roll the dough a little less than 1/4". Do not add too much flour in the rolling process- that makes them hard, too. If you want a more honey-lemony cookie, don't be afraid to increase the honey and/or lemon just a little bit.

Sorry....this recipe also calls for 1/3 Cup shortening. They are great cookies, but very tricky dough. You don't want it too moist or they stick...to dry and they get tough. These are also easily burnt...if they brown at all, then you've waited too long to get them out of the oven. Just slightly golden in color. Rory

YUCK! Tasteless and didn't even help to put a sweet frosting on them. They were hard and tasteless. Very disappointed.
