    Barb's recipes is true to it's word-- these cookies are very soft and cake-like. I added a couple dashes of cinnamon and 1/2 tsp of vanilla and omitted the lemon zest and nutmeg. I also molded dough into balls and then flattened them by hand. Overall, a very good sugar cookie. I would recommend under baking these slightly at 7 1/2-8 minutes.  -  09 Sep 2002  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)


    This recipe makes a very cake like cookie. Be careful to take out when the tops are just beginning to lose their glisten. Made 24 2-1/2 inch round cookies when using heaping teaspoon full of dough.  -  02 Dec 2007  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)


    I think this is a great basic recipe. The dough was very manageable. I excluded Lemon Zest or Nugmeg, but added Caramon.  -  29 Jan 2005  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
