Very good cookie. Not at all dry as some have noted. You must refrigerate overnight. I've made them two Christmases running and will probably be in trouble if I don't make them again! 4 stars

Fabulous lemon cookies! Great lemon flavor and really simple to make: just remember they need to chill overnight.

I only needed 1 large lemon instead of 2-3. So, I have some left over for making these the second time. This is not a large recipe, so the yield in somewhat small but well worth it.

This was my first attempt at slice cookies and it caught my by surprise how dry the finished dough is. At first I thought I had made a mistake somewhere but then realized the dough comes together very well once you start to "mold" it into the log.

If you like real lemon flavor, I highly recommend this recipe. Give it a try, I think you'll like it!.

Would not make this again.
The texture of the cookies was grainy and too crisp, maybe it was the extra sugar crystals on top. The flavor is really good though, but I will still look for another recipe that will be lighter and chewier. 3 stars

These cookies were very easy and tasted great! I skipped the lemon zest
because I couldn't find my zester, and they *still* had a nice lemony taste.
Next time I think I'll double the recipe because it only makes about 4 doz. (Hint: you'll get more juice from your lemon if you microwave it for a minute before squeezing. I only used one lemon instead of the 2-3 called for, and I had juice left over.)

WOW WOW WOW!!! These are wonderful! I wanted something to contrast all the nuts and chocolate in my other Christmas goodies, and this is it! They have just the right balance of tart and sweet. I would definitely recommend using a light colored pan (I lined mine with parchment paper) to keep them from browning on the bottom. I will definitely make these again. 5 stars

This is a WONDERFUL recipe! Great tasting and very easy to make. I also made this using different flavorings, like rum and cherry, and rolled the logs in crushed pecans. All the variations of this recipe came out just wonderful! This is a keeper in my recipe files. 5 stars
