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!

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

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

This is wonderful! Easy to make. Don't double the recipe into a larger pan. Too difficult to remove! You'll have to make two if you want more.
