Haven’t tasted them yet. But, I had to add juice from 3 lemons to get this to finally come together. It’s an easy and quick recipe, but if the proportions are wrong......wel, I’m crossing my fingers

These are soft and delicious. You can't go wrong with butter, sugar and lemon. I did double the lemon zest and lemon juice. I also added a touch of citric acid to the powdered sugar on top for a little bit of zing. Yum!

The cookies were delicious! I added a little more lemon juice and zest, and they turned out great. However, I didn’t know when they finished baking because they’re still a bit soft in the oven when they’ve finished. I have a friend who’s a huge fan of lemon cookies, so I’ll definitely make them again.

It turned out pretty good. I didn't have any lemon zest, so I just used two eights cup of lemon juice. They had a pie crust- lemon flavor.

Yummy, nice light fluffy texture. The lemon wasn't very strong, and they have kind of a shortbread taste

. I must have done something wrong because mine flattened out in the baking. These are delicious. I made one batch with lemon and one with lime. I also used a glaze instead of the icing sugar dusting

Very light on lemon flavor. I would add more zest next time. Definitely melts in your mouth.

The lemon kiss is quite Continental but waffles are best with jam. Just the same soft biscuit recipe but rolled out dough cut in rounds or squares and sandwiched with favourite jam are just so Viennese! Good coffee klatch, too.

The cookie itself was good. The powdered sugar killed the lemony taste of the cookie

It was okay but the instructions arent clear. Also my dough turned out crumbly so i had to add more butter which helped it to stick better
