    This recipe was given to me years ago while visiting an aunt in Iowa. It is so easy that even my sister who can't bake to save her life, got them to turn out.

    This recipe is quick and easy, and the cookies are very good; however, I wanted CRISP cookies and these were not. The only change I made to the recipe is that I used butter instead of shortening because I don't cook with shortening anymore.  -  26 Sep 2008  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    This recipe was completely scrumptious!!! I added lemon extract to make it extra lemony!! My whole family loved it and it was gone with the hour!! I had to make a second batch that day to satisfy everyone!! I found if you drop them by the tablespoon they're extra soft and yummy!! i also garnished with a little powdered sugar like suggested and they looked great too!!  -  06 Jul 2005  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
