    The cookies are delicious I did use the zest of two lemons since we like an 8ntense lemon flavor in things.

    Super good! I just added some extra lemon juice because the flavor wasn’t super strong

    Great! Nice and soft too. I added a lot more lemon juice and a dash of lemon extract so it has a good lemon flavor

    Quite lovely and yummy or my first go! Next time, I will need to make some adjustments for my oven and I think I added slightly too much flour.
