One tablespoon lemon juice as the only liquid. No eggs? How does this even work?
Hi Kate, this cookie is meant to be more of a shortbread. In traditional shortbreads, there is no egg. This is what makes it so tender. Hope that helps!
Mine turned out like a sheet of paper thin pancakes... What did I do wrong??
Thanks for your question, Jillian! Proper flour measurement and chilled dough are keys to success for this delicate cookie recipe. If the flour is measured too light it would result in a very thin cookie. The dough will also need to be thoroughly chilled prior to baking. You will want to slice and bake the cookies relatively quickly after removing the dough from the refrigerator. We hope this helps!
