    These cookies have a wonderful lemony flavor including the lemon filling. These are basically a shortbread cookie. I almost didn't make them because of the reviews. Dough will be stiff, but flour your hands and work it until it is combined well. Dough will look smooth & no longer crumbly. Then wrap in plastic & refrigerate. I did add 1/2 tsp vanilla to the dough & a little to the filling. I rolled the dough between 1/4 & 1/8 in. Do watch baking time. Bake 8-10 min. I will make again.

    Here's my fix for this bunk recipe.... Add one egg to butter and sugar mixture. Add one teaspoon when you mix in flour Add one teaspoon of 1/2 & 1/2 if too dry Roll into an 18 inch plastic log and chill for 4 hours Cut 1/2 inch slices and bake for 10 or so minutes at 350. Allow to cool and frost. Return covered cookies to fridge to cool. That...is a lemon sandwich cookie!!

    This is the second time I have made this recipe. I would definitely endorse the suggestion from others to form and slice a log. This dough is very hard to work with. It's either too cold and crumbly, or too soft, and sticky.(and I am a fairly skilled baker for an amateur.) DO NOT COOK FOR 15-20 minutes!!! Unless you like burnt cookies. Ovens certainly vary, but no more than 8 mins in a consumer grade oven. Use 4oz of cream cheese & you will have plenty of filling for 3 dozen sandwiches.

    I, as well had a big problem with this cookie recipe. I followed the dirrections at every step and the dough rolled out with perfect texture; however, when I baked the cookies it melted into one hugh flat blob. This was a time consuming recipe and I have still the filling left over that I need to find a use for. Yet first, I may try to fix the cookie dough with perhapes adding more flour after I bring it back to room temperature or maybe adding baking powder. It needs something for firmness,

    So disappointed. I have never been so unsuccessful after following a recipe AND a video. Followed to a T and the dough did not come together at all. What a let down. Are there specific brands of the ingredients required?

    Very easy cookie. Very rich buttery flavor. I don't like to roll out cookies so I formed the dough into a long roll and chilled it. Then when it was time to bake them I just sliced and baked them. I did wait about 5 minutes before slicing them to prevent them from crumbling. There was exactly enough filling. No additions.
