    Sarah,

    LOVE Today's Recipe; I make them on a regular basis and they are almost always hits. I'm afraid that this citrus doodle was... only so-so. We found it was too sweet and not citrusy enough. I have to share with you where we are coming from though -- my friend Anna's Snappy Lemon cookies are the.most.lemony.cookies.ever. Promise. Here's the recipe --

    1/2 cup melted unsalted butter
    2/3 cup fresh squeezed lemon juice (about 4 lemons)
    1 cup white sugar
    2 TB grated lemon rind
    1 large egg
    1 tsp vanilla
    2 1/2 cup flour
    1/2 tsp baking soda
    1/2 tsp salt

    For finishing:
    -1/4 cup white granulated sugar
    -2TB lemon juice

    -Combine cooled butter, sugar, egg, rind, juice & vanilla, and beat
    -Sift together dry ingredients and fold into wet (do not beat).
    -Chill at least 30 minutes.
    -Shape into 1/2" balls
    -Roll balls into reserved sugar, and press evenly onto lined baking sheet
    -Brush with lemon juice

    Bake for 10 minutes at 350°

    Finished cookies will have a soft cakey interior.

    Hope you enjoy them!
