The recipe was mucked up from the start and the mixture was too crumbly to form into anything. Complete waste of time and ingredients. Would never make this recipe again

Although the instructions are all mixed up (thanks inghamdesi for sorting this out), the actual cookie is a winner. My family really liked these last year, and I will be making them again this year. I think I used only candied citron last year, which I love, but will try adding the other dried fruit as well.

The cookies are OK, not great, but the recipe is incredibly poorly written. Step one -- preheat the oven and mix up the basic dough. Step two -- macerate the fruit for at least two hours. If your oven takes that long to heat, you really need to have it checked. Next, step one again, add the flour. Step 3 -- put the lemon zest into the butter mixture, then add the flour. Really? I expected better editing from Martha!
