Would make this again.
This has been a favorite brought by family friend from Italy. We used them at weddings. Added lemon juice to powdered sugar to make a thin icing. Colored the icing pink, green, & white. Or you can make the colors of wedding. Or pink / blue for baby shower!! Enjoy. 5 stars

I didn't have any lemon extract so after googleing, I found that you can use lemon juice but double the amt. Yeah, didn't work well. There isn't much of a lemon taste to it, it also needs a crunch of some nuts in there! 3 stars
