The recipe was easy and delicious. However due to comments,I cut the flour to 2 cups. My family loved the cookies. Just the right amount of lemon flavor. BJ
These turned out great, following the modified instructions above. We sprinkled some with turbinado sugar and dipped the rest in dark chocolate. They were a hit both ways. We really like the dense, rich flavor of shortbread, and living in Florida, I love to use our fresh winter citrus. Win all around.
Worst recipe ever! Don't waste your time or ingredients. I was not able to slice cookies because they were so crumbly. I threw it all away.
Untraditionally, maybe add an egg? This resipe is identical to my treasured recipe for Spritz, with the use of almond flavoring instead of vanilla and lemon, and with one egg for the exact same amount of butter and flour.
Horrible, had to throw the batter out! Don't waste your time. Try an old reliable shortbread recipe, add lemon zest and walnuts. Total waste of time. Why bother with a recipe that requires so much trial and error to "FIX". Dough was impossible to stick together before and after fridge. Just finished cleaning up and throwing out the dough. BIG Disappointment RS - all they do is fall to crumbs. On 12/1/13 they say they tweaked the recipe after all the bad comments - well guess what - it is still the same on 12/20? Hello!
