I use this recipe as a base for my Xmas royal iced cookies instead of making sugar cookies. Fabulous every time. Sometimes add 1 tsp pure lemon oil or 1 tsp vanilla. I use the orange hazelnut recipe every Xmas and half dip the cookies in milk chocolate and add ½ - 1 tsp orange oil to the recipe instead of the zest. So impressed with the results I bought the Fine Cooking 200 favourite Cookies book. Every recipe has turned out beautifully. Lemon shortbread bars to die for. Spritz cookies spritz cleanly out of the cookie press (add some fresh grated nutmeg to the flour). Lime nut buttons - yum. Double ginger crackles yummy. Pecan chocolate squares. Phenomenal!!! Never owned a cook book from which I have made so many recipes
Very easy to make. They are wonderful, I used real salted butter. I will make more batches for the holiday.KellyGaylord, MI
