I totally ramped up the citrus in this cookie -- and used all the zest from a lemon and a lime either in the cookie dough or the glaze. I can't imagine using the quantities called for in the original recipe; it would be very bland. These are a nice glazed cookie, but be sure to use lots of lemon and lime zest.
Great recipe. Everyone that tries these loves them. This will be my 4th year of making these cookies as holiday gifts.
First time making this cookie. It was a huge success at my family Christmas. My grandson just loved them as did my daughters. I will be making them again next year and years to come. I did add more lemon and lime zest than called for. Citrus cookies seem to be a favorite in my family. Very easy to make also.

Am I alone in my love-hate relationship with summertime s’mores? Don’t get me wrong, they are amazing. However, my consumption bliss is short-lived as I try to corral 30 sticky fingers covered in s’more fall-outs before they touch the dog, play in the sandbox, or use my shirt as a napkin.
