I made this recipe and I thought it was rather bland. I made a lemon icing for the tops and I think they are perfect. We'll see after my book club tonight.

OMG......I thought I died and went to Heaven!! I don't usually comment, but these cookies were absolutely the "BEST" cookie I've made in a very long time. Easy recipe, baked nice...kitchen smelled awesome. Recipe said to cool completely....I'm a warm cookie girl by nature & I could not wait to taste these. I cut them warm to taste (they do cut neater once cooled) and savored the rich buttery taste of a tender shortbread cookie. To say the least...these cookies vanished in a day in my house. Too me these are dangerously delicious and now my new Favorite cookie!!
