  • Reviews

  • “They were very sweet which I expected after reading the other reviews but I was shocked that someone was able to shape them as they just kept falling apart. I used about 16 different cookie cutters and it was NOT a success.It was super duper dry. They did raise a lot which I was happy to see but I finally gave up and just rolled circles.”

  • “These are wonderful! I love how crisp they get with the perfect professional looking crackles on top. They are beautiful! Can’t wait to share them tomorrow!”

  • “I made these on Easter with my Neices and Nephews, we had a ball decorating them + They were delicious! ThanksKC for a great cookie recipe, The dough freezes well too! I will definetly make these again and again.”

  • “Very good.I did find that they were a tad too sweet for me, but other than that, pefect.”

  • “Very yummy! Also quite attractive, the tops get nice and crinkled. Crisp on the outside yet stay tender even when stored. A great recipe for using extra egg yolks. Thanks, KC, we really enjoyed these!”

  • “These cookies are very good and quick to make. The cookies are a very light golden color when done. If I would of read the title of the cookies I would not have baked my first batch a bit to long, oops on my part. I did not have lemon flavoring so I used 1/2 teaspoon of lemon juice. This is going to be a family favorite!”
