    This is a shortbread recipe so no eggs. I loved this recipe. Very pretty. A crowd pleaser. I used the rack that inserts into the cookie sheet to put the cookies on after I dipped into the icing. Martha has a couple of beautiful variations of this recipe including the December, 2018 MSL magazine.

      whoops, I thought I was commenting on the Lemon-Pistachio Wreath cookie instead. This does not have an icing, but head over to L-PW recipe for that. And it does include two egg yokes, but not a shortbread cookie.

    Take your time with it. I used a rack over a cookie sheet to set cookie on after I dipped in icing. Very pretty cookie. Delicate and delicious. Crowd pleaser.

    Did you forget an ingredient? Like maybe an egg? The recipe in this form is unusable
