Good, but could be sweeter. I recommend using a little more sugar. Other than that was great!

Had to add almost double the sugar and 2 more tbsp butter and they were not as I had hoped.

I followed this recipe almost exactly, but I didn't like these at all. The taste was just not right and the texture was off too...even my kids didn't care for them.

I give it zero stars. The cookies have a terrible after taste. Making them is a waste of time and money. We were totally disappointed. Tomorrow I feed them to our backyard squirrels.we

This recipe is actually perfect as long as you double the amounts of butter and sugar. Trust me, with those modifications, the cookies turn out super yummy!

I doubled the butter & sugar as one person suggested, decreased the vanilla to 1 tsp and added 1/2 tsp almond extract. They baked up flat and crispy @ 8 minutes but tasted great. Next time will be decreasing the butter back to 1/4 cup.

The cookies were good.. I just took out the lemons and added in (on top)sugar icing! They tasted like sugar cookies that you get in the store... take my advice! Yummmm....

Used coconut oil instead of butter and left out the vanilla, and they
came out fine! The lemon peel gives a great little kick...

Came out tasting like something similar to graham cracker or biscotti (not very sweet, slightly biscuity). It's great if that's what you're going for. Because I know it's possible to make great gluten-free sugar cookies, this recipe doesn't cut it. Needs a lot more butter and sugar.
