After reading reviews that the cookie part was too dry, I added a little lemon juice and a heaping tablespoon of plain yogurt to the dough. I also just frosted the cookies with the filling, rather than making sandwiches, and dusted the tops with powdered surgar. The result was a delicious, tender cookie, like a bite-sized lemon bar. Yum!



Lemon flavored treats are one of my favorites and these really hit the spot!! The filling was easy to make, it just took it a while to thicken up..Have patience, it's worth the wait!!! Thanks for a wonderful treat!!!

These are so good, light and lemony. Like the previous reviewer, I rolled my dough into logs and then sliced and baked. I didn't have a fresh lemon for zest, so I used some pure lemon extract in the dough. The lemon curd filling did take a long time to thicken, (15-20 mins. of stirring) but I expected that. My dough wasn't dry at all; I only put 3/4 of the flour in at first, and then added more, little by little, until the dough was a nice consistency.
