I also used lemon peel, and baked 12 minutes... they were flavorful and mildly tangy, nice texture... I didn't use extra sugar, and found them moderately sweet without it 4 stars

I made these cookies today and was very disappointed in their taste. They tasted doughy and had a sour aftertaste. I also wonder if they shouldn't have been made with butter instead of shortening. 1 star

Would not make this again.
I went against my instinct - which was to find a sugar cookie recipe that actually used butter instead of shortening - and regretted it. Once you are used to cooking with butter there is something synthetic tasting about shortening. These were merely okay - I would not waste my time or ingredients on making them again. I followed the recipe exactly, but rolled them in sugar before putting them on tray. Like others have suggested, they need to cook for more like 13-15 minutes. 3 stars

Would make this again.
I agree they take 15 minutes to bake.
Also, the step of adding the eggs was omitted. It would have ben helpful if they told how many the recipie made; I got 4 doz. And last but not least, I really intensified the color and flavor by adding the zest of one lemon and 6 drops of yellow food coloring.
4 stars

Would make this again.
These cookies were lovely to look at, delicious, and easy to make. I used key lime juice instead of lemon juice, and I selected butter flavored shortening. I found that the cooking time needed to be extended to 15 minutes. Afterward, they were excellent as is, and also dipped in dark chocolate 4 stars
