This looks so good but I was wondering if I can replace the sugar with Splenda? Does anybody know?

I have made these many times. I add lemon zest to the dough. They are great!

I have made these many times. I leave the clove out and add lemon zest to the dough. They are great!

This is by far my absolute favorite cookie! The combination of flavors is outstanding. It is a definate addition to my annual christmas cookie trays.

Tried these for Easter instead of the lemon meltaways which I usually make....they were excellent, the addition of cloves gave such a nice boost to the flavor. I also added some lemon zest to the filling as I like real lemony flavor. These are my new favorite lemon cookie, will definitely be making these again.

very delicate and good, will make again, next time I will slice them thinner, mine were a bit too thick and I may add a little bit more cloves. Made these again and they just get better and better - the filling is delicious, I dust with powdered sugar

I made these cookies as a lemon option for our Thanksgiving. My husband loved them! Sadly I forgot to 1/2 the recipe, so I ended up with way more cookies than we could consume, but he took them to work (his coworkers loved them!) and I took the rest to my job (my coworkers loved them!) The hint of clove keep the lemon from being overpowering. This is certainly a recipe I will keep and make again! rlr
