These cookies were a hit among friends and family. I added an extra teaspoon of lemon extract next batch though to give it more of a lemon flavor.

I have been making this recipe for a long time and it is a favorite. Last time I made them I added cinnamon and cardamom to the sugar used for dipping the glass in.

This is going in my recipe book. My husband said this cookie compares to his favourite cookie. The dough doesn't work for rolling out but that is ok since I like the round ones with a sprinkle of sugar best anyway. I did add a 1/2 teaspoon more of vanilla.
