    These were amazing! I shaped them into balls and put a little dent in the center like thumbprint cookies. Cooked for 11 minutes and they’re perfect!

    So good! I added an egg just to make sure the dough held together. Besides that, the recipe is perfect. Just enough lemon and super melty.

    They turned out delicious, the term “melt away” it completely deserved! They melt in your mouth and they taste absolutely delicious

    The cookies came out great they literally melt in your mouth! only thing I doubled the receipe to make more so they came out flat instead of in round balls probably needed more flour or to add some cornstarch for that stiffness. I also added 6 tbs of lemon juicebor what was left of two squezed lemons.

    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
