I made these smaller than the recipe calls for, and then made sandwiches out of the them with lemon curd in the center. My family devoured them at Easter. The rolling-freezing-rerolling and refreezing was kind of a pain, but the result is worth it. A simple crispy sugar cookie that's not too sweek.

Great simple cookie

Great cookies

I made these smaller and thinner than the recommendation and made sandwich cookies with lemon curd inside. I brought them for Easter and my family raved.

Excellent and healthy-got 2 requests for the recipe

Great tasting, although we did do a few modifications. I used a nice organic stone ground whole wheat pastry flour, and replaced 1/4 cup with almond flour and 1/4 cup coconut flour (I added an extra egg and T applesauce to the wet ingredients-coconut flour is very absorbent). Also, my husband threw out our zested lemon when he was cleaning the kitchen, so I used the zest of 1/2 small lime, 1/2 an orange and lemon juice that I reduced to 1/2 teaspoon. We cheated and used commercial cookie icing, mostly white. If you dilute it with water it makes a nice glaze!

Healthy. We used NO white flour.
