    These are really nice, yummy my children have classified them. I only added 3/4 cup of sugar and they were sweet enough for us.  -  11 May 2014


    I read the reviews before I made them and read about them coming out flat so I used unsalted butter and 1/2 the amount called for and they came out perfect!  -  27 Jul 2008  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)


    Great Cookie. It's sweet and a bit tangy. I put some lemon zest insead of extract since I didn't have the extract. I think this cookie might be great with dried cranberries; might make for a very festive Xmas cookie with them.  -  14 Jul 2007  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
