    I really love your recipies have tried several–the rest will be in my recipe box waiting for me to make. However, I have found that many of your cookie recipies do not have the number of cookies that the recipe makes. When I bake cookies I share whatever I make with my family & friends, so it is essential that I know how many cookies that recipe makes. Could you please add that information to your recipies? I would really appreciate it. Thanks for sharing your yummy recipies with us!

      Hi Paulette – a great suggestion. You’re right, I have been a slacker in doing that. Sometimes they get gobbled up so quickly around here, it’s hard to keep track. :) If you make a batch, please leave a comment on that post and let me know. Generally most my cookie recipes make 2 1/2 dozen cookies. I’ll try to do better. Thanks!

    I’m mixing up a batch right now. I do have a question for you… the package calls for the addition of an egg and either I’m doing something wrong or it needs more liquid. Help please! :)

    Well, I certainly know where to refer to if ever I’d desire this much lemony flavour in one dessert treat ;o)

    Flavourful wishes…and happy continued holiday baking,

    I’m so glad you’re still posting cookie recipes, Barbara! I adore those lemon candies. What a super idea to incorporate them into cookies and then use fresh lemon juice as well. Can this recipe be any easier?? I love it!

    Besides luvin’ that it’s lemon, I do like that it can be quick to make and probably easier to whip up with the kiddies! Nice presentation with the lemon drops. :)
