This is my adopted recipe as of Feb 2005. I made these today and found very good. A very delicate cookie. I didn't leave enough room between the cookies in the first batch and they ran into each other when baking. They still taste good. The original poster describes below where she got the recipe. The Lemon Lovers Cookbook The Chicago Sun-Times Peg Bailey has a passion for lemons. Having lived all over the world, Bailey is able to cull the best national dishes from places such as Greece, Malta, England, and her home in Virginia for The Lemon Lovers Cookbook. The recipes are never overly complicated, and most are ideal for weekday cooking. Exotic fare such as Aegean shrimp and caviar mousse exist peacefully with all-American staples such as carrot cake and lemon bars. Easy Refrigerator Lemon Cookies These cookies are great in the summer with a bowl of fresh fruit. Plan ahead, though, as you have to leave the dough in the refrigerator for several hours before baking.
