To keep these cookies flaky and light, do not overmix the butter and sugars; they should be combined but not be too soft when you add the remaining ingredients.

    The cookies were great, very easy to make. The glaze will definately make you pucker. Next time I will try to make them without the glaze.

    I made a platter of these along with a batch of Martha's Lemon Cornmeal (check the recipe finder: it's there) cookies, and served to a large summer crowd after a dinner. GREAT together, both easy, and both sweet/tart for a dessert adults and kids both loved.

    These cookies are great! I added some fresh mint to the glaze and called them Mojito cookies. They really aren't that difficult to make either

    I made these cookies today, and I agree with vinesal. They are really good summer cookies. I didn't have lime today, so I used a lemon instead. Everybody loved these cookies. They go well with any tea. not too sweet, and actually children didn't love them, but they were a big hit for LADIES.

    These are terrific cookies! They were especially delicious during the summer! Many of my friends who don't like overly sweet cookies loved these!! Thank goodness I have a microplane zester--a must to make these!
