    This was Not a good cookie recipe. The flavor was not as lemony as advertised. My search continues for a great lemon cookie recipe

    This is the third time i made this and the dough is always so sticky. Does the flour quantity is correct? In the last batch, i managed it by putting the dough in freezer first for about 15 minutes and scoop it with ice cream maker. It works and the taste is lovely. Thank you

      Hi, Aini! We just retested this recipe and added a step to chill the dough in the fridge for 1 hour before shaping. The dough is still sticky and tacky, but chilling makes it a little more manageable. I hope this helps!

      Thanks for the suggestion! I tried to increase the flour when I was testing it and I found that the lemon flavor became more dull with the addition of the flour. But your trick with the freezer sounds great. I will try that next time I make this recipe!

    Have a batch of these in the oven now. I am a experienced baker. I found the dough very sticky. The wet/damp hands method did not quite work. Dropped the dough into the sugar then was able to roll them. Also, need to dip the bottom of the glass in sugar periodically. The taste was good, not great, just good. Was expecting much more of a lemon flavor. Liked the final texture and chewiness of the cookie. Next time I think I’ll refrigerate the dough before rolling. Will keep this recipe in the “in progress” file.

      Hi, Dede! Just wanted to let you know that we retested this recipe and added a step to chill the dough in the fridge for 1 hour before shaping. The dough is still fairly sticky and tacky, but chilling makes it a little more manageable. I hope this helps!

    My sister, a lemon cookie LOVER, would go crazy for these! Most lemon cookie recipes are crunchy and thin, which some people love, but these look heavenly! :)

    I made these yesterday, they are delicious and were simple to make. I used my cookie dough scooper to make the rolling in the sugar less messy. My kids are super happy! Thanks for a great recipe.

    I know butter is always best, but, can I use butter flavored Crisco instead? I rarely have butter on hand. This cookie sounds luscious!

    I can’t wait to make these – they look yummy!! Do these baked lemon cookies freeze well? I usually freeze some of my baked cookies, because its just 2 of us.
