    I wanted to mention that I rolled some of the last remaining dough into small balls, flattened slightly with a fork and dusted with confectioners sugar...this worked very well (much easier) and was still yummy - I actually preferred it.

    This was far more effort than necessary to make cookies! They are tasty - lemony/melt-in-your mouth/crunchy, but take far too long to keep chilled and handle because the dough is incredibly soft. Won't make them again, unfortunately.

    Once again the ole preheat oven when you are going to be chilling and freezing the dough after the actual mixing time but I will be preheating while cutting the dough like I always do. The recipe sounds delish and I am out to the kitchen to make them. Mykele

    I haven't tried this yet, but I'm going to just substitute my favorite butter cookie recipe, and add a little almond extract and the lemon rind to it. Hope it works!

    I ground the almonds too! I read online that that is how to make "almond flour." I did that, but the dough stayed so sticky even though I refrigerated the dough for over an hour. The butter was at room temp. Maybe it should have been cold? I usually love Martha's recipes, and they always work. Not this one. Too bad; they looked great.

    Followed recipe exactly. Used a spice grinder to process almonds which worked great. However the cookies spread and lost their shape even though dough was cold when baked!

    I know Trader Joes isn't everywhere, but they sell almond "meal" I think it's called. Would that be close enough?
