Great tasting cookie. I used a tsp. of fresh lemon juice, and a tbs. of lemon zest (omitting the lemon extract). Excellent. After trying these, I have also decided to skip the rolling in sugar step, and just dust the cooled cookies with powdered sugar. The powdered sugar will nestle nicely into the surface of this cookie! Even though I made some slight alterations, I give these cookies 5 stars because they are sooo easy to prepare, quick to cook, and are incredibly easy to transport. It's crisp, yet chewy, allowing them to be packaged in any way. Mahalo nui loa!

Sweet Fancy Moses!!!!!!!!!!! These cookies are one of THE BEST that has ever come out of my oven! I couldn't believe how fast they were mixed up. We rolled these in a mixture of yellow colored sugar and regular granulated-gave them a nice yellow color with a little sparkle-they are really pretty. The taste is incredible-so light and refreshing. You would never guess that there isn't any real lemon in this recipe. The citrus flavor and the chewy texture of this cookie is fabulous-I will make this over and over! Thanks for sharing such a wonderful recipe.

What I love about these cookies is that they not only taste great with a great texture, but they also look perfect. They bake into perfect circles. I made these for a birthday party and rolled them in colored decorator's sugar to match our party colors instead of regular white sugar. If you're pressed for time put the dough in the freezer to chill, only takes about 20 minutes. I'm baffled by other reviewers comments about the cookies spreading too much. My only guess is that their dough wasn't chilled enough or they didn't use real butter. I baked mine about 2 inches apart and had room to spare when they were done.
