    These are my favourite cookies ever! I sprinkled coconut flakes over the top and they turned out amazing, plus they were quick and easy to make! Did the same as others with using more lemon juice and zest instead of extract. Will make these all the time! - 12 Jul 2015

    Very easy to do and turned out beatifully. I didn't use the lemon extract either just used the zest of 2 lemons and juice from half the 2nd. Certainly keep the recipe to do again. - 20 May 2014
