This is a delicious recipe! I made the glaze a little thinner (more lemon juice) and added more grated lemon zest to the glaze! Incredible!

Boring. Could not taste the thyme. Will not bother with them again.

The thyme and the lemon in this shortbread can be increased if you like a stronger lemon or thyme flavor.
